Test specific information

-

Age

Symptoms will develop at a young age. Within a few hours to a maximum of several weeks after birth, the characteristics that go with these genetic effects will become visible.

Turnaround time

The Turnaround Time (TAT) depends on various factors, such as the shipment time of your sample to the test location, the test method(s) and whether the tests are performed completely or partially by a Partner Lab or Patent owner.

The TAT of tests performed at our facilities is normally 10 working days after receipt of the sample at the testing laboratory (VHL, VHP or Certagen). For tests performed by a Partner Laboratory (so-called "partner lab test") or patent owner, the TAT is at least 20 working days after receipt of your sample. Because the shipment time to our Partner Labs or patent owner may vary due to factors we cannot influence, the mentioned 20 working days are therefore an estimate.

PLEASE NOTE
Sometimes it is necessary to re-run your sample. We call this a retest. In that case, the TAT will of course be extended.

Location of disease or trait

This disease affects the formation of bone as well as the skeletal development.

Breed dependence

For this test samples from all breeds are accepted.

Sample type

For this DNA test we accept the following materials: Blood EDTA, Blood Heparin, Semen, Tissue, Swab. Please contact Dr. Van Haeringen Laboratorium if you wish to submit other material as listed.

Result

The disease is of multifactorial origin, which means that the symptoms are a result of the combination of genetic factors as well as the environment.

For each genetic factor of a multifactorial disease, a favourable allele exists. The results for this allele are inidcated as 'Normal'. Animals carrying one copy of the undesirable genetic variant are indicated as 'Carrier', whereas animals carrying two copies of the undesirable genetic variant are indicated as 'Affected'.

Inheritance

The disease is of multifactorial origin, which means that the symptoms are a combination of genetic factors as well as the environment.
