H481 CombiBreed FCI Group 08


The Combination Pack CombiBreed Group 08 is assembled for dogs within the FCI Breedgroup 8, Retrievers - Flushing Dogs - Water Dogs. This package covers several important traits and can be based on samples from animals at any age. Information on individual tests is available at our website.

We offer you the possibility to add H398 Combination package Partnerlab for a reduced rate. This offer is only valid for a webshop order when both tests are ordered at the same time for the same animal.

This Combination Package contains the following markers:
H324 FBN2
H360 Gallbladder Mucocele
H375 Dog_Skin Fragility
H416 Congenital Hypothyroidism (CHG) 1
H421 Hiplaxity 2
H427 MTM
H432 Tremor, X-linked
H456 SCID 2
H473 GR_PRA2
H486 Epilepsy, BFJ
H510 Skeletal Dysplasia 2 (SD2)
H511 rcd4 PRA
H698 Narcolepsy 3
H717 PFK (Phosphofructokinase Deficiency)
H736 Fucosidosis
H740 Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Phosphatase 1 (PDP1)
H741 Pyruvate kinase Deficiency (PKDef)
H749 Centronuclear Myopathy (CNM, also known as HMLR)
H811 Hyperuricemia (HUU)
H868 GR_PRA1
H873 Ichthyosis 2
H919 Hiplaxity 1

Test specific information

Dr. van Haeringen Laboratorium B.V. (VHL), introduces a different strategy for DNA tests for several genetic markers. Recently, technical improvements have allowed for the combination of several genetic markers in one test.

In addition to the strategy to introduce CombiBreed Combination Packages, we have compiled the packages by breed group and not for a specific breed.

Why CombiBreed packages per breed group?
• Our novel technology allows for logistical efficiency within our laboratory. This permits us to introduce the CombiBreed combination packages for a very competitive price.
• The CombiBreed packages contain DNA tests available in at least one breed within a breed group. Usually, scientific publications indicate if this genetic variation is validated for a breed.
• In our experience, the same genetic variation frequently occurs in closely related breeds, although the variation is only scientifically published in one breed. Mutations described and validated for a particular breed can thus also be present in other closely related breeds within a breed group. Laboratories performing these tests confirm the presence of mutations in other breeds.
• Our range of DNA tests will be reviewed several times per year. Newly available tests will be published on the website.
• We kindly request you to contact us (contactform) if your dog breed is not listed within a CombiBreed Group.

An actual overview of the genetic variation present in a breed can be assessed by performing the CombiBreed combination packages. Valuable information about previously unknown genetic variation may be found using our CombiBreed tests. However, ultimately our clients decide about the DNA tests ordered.


Information on individual tests is elsewhere available on this website.

Turn Around Time

The turn-around-time of a test depends to a large extent on the logistics of sample transportation to the laboratory. After receiving the sample at the test location, you can normally expect the result within 10 working days. A longer delivery time applies to tests carried out by a Partner Lab.

Location of disease or trait

Information on individual tests is elsewhere available on this website.

Breed dependence
