Canine disease genomics progresses quickly and academic research groups around the world have already discovered mutations underlying more than 160 genetic disorders and traits in different breeds. Until today, testing of the known canine diseases has been possible only with separately conducted single-gene tests. Genoscoper Laboratories has, as the first animal diagnostics laboratory in the world, developed a unique genetic panel testing and reporting concept to efficiently and economically test most of the known mutations at once.
