List of Feline Genetic Tests

All Genetic tests are run several times a week. The results are usually sent by email or post within 3 working days of us receiving your samples. These times can be subject to change (e.g. for Bank holidays) and results may be delayed if the swabs are of poor quality and contain low levels of DNA.

We accept mouth swabs or EDTA blood for all genetic tests listed below.
