Determination of horse genetic profile

For genetic profile testing, horsehairs, blood samples or cheek swabs are preferred.

The result report is in compliance with Act No 154/2000 Coll., in full wording and Regulation 448/2006 Coll.

Genetic type is used for the individual origin verification - online ordering here.


What exactly genetic profile is?

The determination of genetic profile means determination of a set of genetic markers that are characteristic and unmistakable for the given individual (such as, for example, fingerprints of people). On the basis of a genetic profile, a dog can be uniquely identified. Thanks to the genetic profile, parenthood / paternity / maternity  can be evaluated.

To determine the genetic profile, tandem repetitive sequences (STR) are used. These sequences, also called microsatellites, are a class of genetic markers consisting of tandem sequence repeats with a size of two to seven base pairs. The alleles of STR locus change according to the number of repeats of the given sequence motive. Due to high level of polymorphism (informativity) and Mendelian inheritance, the microsattelites became suitable genetic markers for the study of diversity, parentage tests and the genetic identity.
STR alleles are determined by means of multiplex polymerase chain reaction (multiplex PCR). One of the primers of each pair is at 5´-end labelled with a fluorescent dye. Fragments are divided and detected in only one electrophoretic probe using an automatic electrophoresis device.


Genomia is an ISAG member

Genomia participates in comparative quality tests, that are every two years held by ISAG (International Society for Animal Genetics).







The laboratory guarantees determination of at least 15 from the following 17 markers: VHL20, AHT5, HMS2, AHT4, HTG10, LEX3, ASB23, HMS1, ASB2, HTG6, HMS3, HTG4, CA425, HMS6, HTG7, ASB17, HMS7. These markers are included in the recommended panel according to the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG).
