Reliable DNA testing for health and breeding

Why generatio and Center for Animal Genetics?

Modern animal genetics requires the highest level of expertise in scientific principles, veterinary medicine, information technology and laboratory analytics.

generatio is your partner - whether you are an individual animal owner, veterinarian, breeder, or the largest breeding organisation.

Our current focus is on horses and dogs; here we have been carrying out parentage, trait and disease analyses to the highest quality standards for over 20 years. We hold the exclusive PSSM2 Equine Myopathy testing license for Europe through our merger with CAG.


For owners

As an animal owner, your animal’s health is your main concern. With our packages, it is not necessary to have expert knowledge.

For Breeders

Breeders benefit from the possibility of networking within populations. In the ATC, animal data can be used in many ways.

For Breed Clubs

Breed clubs find proven procedures and the know-how from 20 years of cooperation with the largest breed clubs.


For Veterinarians

With special panels on individual clinical symptoms, we provide clarity as to whether one of the known genetic causes is present.

How generatio works

Broad diagnostics and data evaluation on individual animals - supplemented by (optional) participation in breed clubs and/or self-organised Internet communities.

Using DNA data

Online platform 'Animal Trust Center' (ATC)

Genetic data is important.  The ATC exists to ensure that the data is preserved and can be used for further analyses in the future.

ATC analytics

Our analyses provide an objective assessment of your animal based on its genetic characteristics.  ATC's technical features secure this information and enable new approaches to the use of DNA data.

Our current ATC Analytics portfolio:

  1. DNA InfoLevel
  2. Genetic Diversity
  3. Mating assessment
  4. Breeding mate search

ATC animal record

The ATC utilizes the uniqueness of each animal and creates a single, unambiguous animal record starting at birth. All information about an animal can be continuously recorded and made available in this record. The owner of the animal record regulates via sophisticated user rights whether and with whom which contents are shared.

ATC certificates

The ATC's electronically signed PDF certificates provide the security of authenticity on the Internet that would not otherwise be available.
Our technology makes the documents unique and tamperproof. If manipulation is suspected, our SignCheck application detects whether the document is a valid copy or has been altered.
