We also offer customized solutions for breeding organizations with DNA programmes.
The health of your animals is our top priority. Whether you are an animal owner, veterinarian, breeder, or breeding organization, you can benefit from the results of genetic testing.
- Over 20 years experience in animal genetics with our in-house laboratories. Our talented technicians and biologists include those with doctorates in genetics and veterinary medicine.
- Highest quality standards: Disease and trait testing and parentage analysis are run under the highest quality standards. Quality control and management is ensured through internal QC testing as well as by regular participation in ISAG comparison tests.
- Exclusive European patent for the PSSM2 test – PSSM2 is the umbrella term for a group of related muscle diseases with similar clinical symptoms.

Due to an internal event, the lab will be closed all day on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. Unfortunately, no inquiries by phone or e-mail can be processed on this day. We will be available again from Wednesday during normal office hours by phone and continuously by e-mail.
Our event will not affect sample reception. All sample submissions will be accepted on Tuesday, but processing will not start until Wednesday.
Generatio has established a generous subsidy as part of an IAFH research project on PSSM2. The requirement for the discounted test is consent to use the PSSM2 findings in scientific research. Requests for the IAFH testing must be submitted directly to the respective IAFH breeding association, through which billing will also be done.
At the same time, we are pleased to announce that we will reduce the price of the PSSM2 6-variant panel test at generatio to 200 € (excl. VAT) as of April 1, 2022.
There is currently much discussion among horse breeders and owners about the group of hereditary muscle diseases known as PSSM2. The need for more data on the frequency and severity of these mutations in different breed populations is clear. Generatio GmbH – Center for Animal Genetics, the exclusive European patent holder of the EquiSeq PSSM2 variants[MC1] , has therefore established a unique cooperation with the International Association of Future Horse Breeding (IAFH) to test horses of Holstein, Trakehner, Oldenburg, Oldenburg Springpferd, and Westphalian populations.
