For several species and applications, Dr. van Haeringen Laboratorium (VHL) have developed Combination Packages. VHL continues the policy to combine multiple DNA tests into single packages. This enables and increases the possibilities to generate information about genetic parameters in a cost effective way. In 2013new sets of application-specific Combination Packages have been designed.
All genetic diseases and characteristics are stored in the DNA. VHL applies advanced DNA technology, thus enabling Combination Packages of DNA tests at a very attractive price. When performing two or more tests on the same sample, a Combination Package may be less expensive than the combined price of individual tests.
In the beginning of 2013, VHL and Holbigenetics NV have initiated a collaboration regarding the Combination Packages. Together with Dr. Frank Coopman (specialist veterinary genetics) two dedicated types of Combination Packages have been developed: CombiGen® and CombiBreed®. At the start, CombiGen® and CombiBreed® packages have been developed for dogs and cats. CombiGen® packages are dedicated for veterinarian use, whereas CombiBreed® tests aim to offer a cost effective breed-specific set of markers. Both Combination Packages aim to improve the sustainable breeding and general health of animals. The majority of tests included are based on non-patented markers, because patented DNA markers are usually much more expensive to order.
Several CombiBreed® Combination packages are available to order. These tests are aimed at combination of breed specific combinations. Click here for ordering these Combination packages through our webshop.
