Coat colour tests

Free testing offers and commercial testing

While the lab is getting up and running, we regularly have free genotyping offers. These offers are only for horses that can be positive controls, i.e horses that have the coat colour or disease gene that we are working on. Read more about them here.

Standard commercial testing is also available. The full range of tests that we currently offer is shown in the order form below.
