In animals, karyotyping is performed to identify chromosomal abnormalities. These abnormalities reduce the fertility because the chromosomes do not match in new embryos. A translocation originates in 1 percent of all animals.
Test specific information
Special requirements are in place for karyotyping. Please contact VHL prior to submitting a sample for this test.
The genetic factor is continuously present, and will always be visible.
Normally the result can be expected within 35 working days. This turn-around-time starts when both the sample and the fully filled-out and signed submission form have been received.
Location of disease or trait
The chromosomal variation is present in the whole body.
For this test samples from all breeds are accepted.
For this DNA test we accept the following materials: Sodium Heparin blood. Please contact PharmaDNA if you wish to submit other material as listed.
The result of a karyotype shows, if a detectable chromosomal abnormality is present.
Chromsomal abnormalities can be inherited to the next generation.
