Sorry, we aren't taking any more orders this week.
We are flat out! We want to keep doing a good job for our clients so we've taken the step of capping the number of orders we accept. If we don't do this, the turnaround time for testing will keep getting longer and longer.
Orders for each new week open on Monday, Sydney time. We are working to find ways to test more samples every day, and we will increase the weekly cap as soon as we can.
In the mean time, have a look through our individual tests and panels (panels are groups of tests) to help decide what you want to test for.
W22 dominant white (W22)
W22 is a version of the KIT gene that produces a partial to completely white coat pattern. W22 is thought to have originated in an USA-bred Thoroughbred mare called Not Quite White, born in 1989.
Not Quite White had at least two white foals. The most well-known is Airdrie Apache (a stallion). She also produced a filly called Spotted Lady. Most W22 horses are descended from Airdrie Apache.
No horses have been identified yet carrying two copies of W22.
