Pending samples stored at the office does not mean the samples are in process, so if in doubt, please contact the office to check the status of your animals.

Note. Due to Covid-19, processing times are taking much longer than normal, so please submit them as soon as possible. To reduce the risk of your samples being rejected, please make sure the sample is tail hair with plenty of visible root follicles (40-60 hairs) and as clean and dry as possible.
