Cat parentity testing

Are you interested in yours kitten pedigree? Is your kitten really offspring of the parents, you chose according to their accomplishments? Are you not sure which sire is father yours dam litter? Cat parentage testing and DNA identification can help you to answer these questions.

If you order a paternity test to the genetic profile for the offsprings,  so establishment of a genetic profile at a price of 42 Eur (34.71 Eur without VAT) will be included in your order automatically. The establishment of the genetic profile of an individual is necessary for paternity determination as the relationship of the individuals is determined by comparison of their genetic profiles. Genetic profile is in accordance with ISAG.

.

For high probability of cat parentage testing is necessary to analyze samples of both parents - because cats of the same breed are very similar and differ only in a few markers.

.

Can I provide a genetic profile that has been already established for the proof of paternity?

Instead of a sample for establishing the genetic profile it is possible to submit an already established genetic profile. If one of the genetic profiles to be tested was determined in other laboratory, Genomia laboratory charges a fee of 4 Eur (incl. VAT) for processing the external genetic profile (you can find the fee in the price list for our services).

What genetic profile is?

DNA profile can be determined from a blood sample or a cheek swabs. Cat paternity analysis is the same as with humans. Common markers among offspring DNA and parents DNA are searched for. A parentage is proved, if probable parent is detected like biological parent. Sequences repeated in tandems (microsatellites) are used for parentage testing. These microsatellites contain sequences repeated in tandems from two to seven base pairs. Microsatellites are inherited in Mendelian manner. Each offspring has to correspond with a parent in 50% of each microsatellite marker. Microsatellite markers are used for individual identification and, for paternity analysis in humans and animals. Size of a marker (number of base pair in a microsatellite) is detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and subsequent fragment analysis. One of the primers for PCR is marked on 5´end by a florescent dye. Fragments are separated and detected by automatic electrophoresis instrument.
For cat parentage testing following loci are used FCA069, FCA075, FCA105, FCA149, FCA220, FCA229, FCA310, FCA441, FCA678, Amelogenin, FCA026, FCA201, FCA293, FCA453, FCA649. These markers are recommended by the International Society of Animal Genetics (ISAG). Genomia determines at least 12 of mentioned markers.

Genomia regularly participates in comparative quality tests, that are every two years held by ISAG (International Society for Animal Genetics). Here, you can see latest certificate of quality, where Genomia was very successful :-)
