When can I order?
How can I order?
Once launched, LABOGenetics XXL Cat can be ordered directly here in the webshop. Alternatively, you may use our well-known submission forms. Please order test number 9330 (LABOGenetics XXL Cat). We recommend sending a blood sample. However, if you prefer a cheek swab, we will be happy to send you our specially optimised swabs.
How long does it take until I receive my test results?
The results of this comprehensive screening are usually available within 2-3 weeks.
Tip: If you would like faster results, please check out our wide range of individual tests. These can often be offered with a significantly shorter turnaround time.
What does it mean if the result is ‘not evaluable’?
In very rare cases, the DNA quantity or quality is not sufficient to obtain results for all tests included in the LABOGenetics XXL Cat package. In these cases, you will find a “not evaluable” in the report. This ensures the flexibility to get the most out of a given sample and guarantees a comprehensive insight into your cat's genetics. Unfortunately, repeats of individual genetic tests of the LABOGenetics XXL Cat package are not possible with the underlying next generation sequencing technology. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com
What sample material is required?
We strongly recommend submitting an EDTA blood sample as blood contains up to 100 times the amount of DNA compared to a buccal swab. Alternatively, you can request specially optimized swabs when you place your order. If a cheek swab is taken correctly, the desired results can also be obtained. Please only use the specially optimized swabs and not the swabs from our standard test kit.
