Video about our laboratory work
What happens to your horse hair sample after it has been received in our laboratory? Our new video offers you an insight into our daily laboratory work.
PSSM2 is now Muscle Integrity Myopathy (MIM)!
Based on the most current scientific knowledge, this reclassification correctly aligns the disorder within the field of Exertional Myopathies.
The former PSSM2 test now available as the MIM 6 Variant Panel. It still contains the 6 gene variants (P2, P3, P4, P8, Px, K1), which are important genetic predispositions for the development of MIM (Muscle Integrity Myopathy), a hereditary form of exercise myopathy caused by disruptions to the structure or function of the muscle.
Send us your animal sample by 12.12. and receive the results before Christmas
Send us your animal sample by 12 December and you will have the opportunity to receive the result before Christmas. The deadline refers to the postal arrival of the sample at our laboratory in Tübingen (horses) or Heidelberg (dogs). Of course, we also process samples that reach our laboratory after 12 December, but you will not receive these results until after our Christmas holidays.
