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.

Order our new Express PSSM2 test now and receive the test results within only 3 working days after sample receipt in our laboratory.
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.
generatio is performing research to better understand the relationship between symptoms and environmental factors involved with the multifactorial genetic disorder PSSM2 (equine myopathy). Owners of all horses that have been tested for PSSM2 by generatio, EquiSeq, or through the IAFH are invited to compete the scientific survey for each tested horse.
