Proves a sample came from a particular animal
An identity test is used to identify that a DNA sample belongs to a particular animal. We use the same marker panel that we have for parentage testing for identity testing purposes. The applications for this service include identifying animals that have lost their tag, insurance of valuable animals, forensic testing, product tracing, and resolving identity disputes.
DNA sample is collected from the animal and a profile is generated and stored on the database. The profile (which may also have been used for pedigree testing) can then be recalled at any stage and used to match to a subsequent sample from the animal.
