Macrogen's MyPetgene Genetic Testing

Macrogen has launched MyPetgene, a customized genetic testing service that provides information on rare genetic disorders that may occur in various species of animals, individual DNA identification, and breed and gender verification. The tests analyze the genes of various companion animals such as dogs, horses, birds, and cats, and provides information that can predict and help manage potential genetic disorders in advance, the company said. Once customers receive the kit, they must return it with buccal epithelial cells, blood, hairs, bone fraction, and other samples. Once the tests are completed, the results are available on the MyPetgene website within three days.
