In our CombiBreed webshop you can order DNA tests for dogs, cats and horses. Select the right animal species for the range of available and applicable DNA tests. Our selection tool will help you select the right DNA tests. There are three options:
- Single test; order a single test for your animal (all types possible)
- CombiBreed package; we have made packages for many breeds with the help of breed clubs and studbooks.
- Create your own package; do you want to combine DNA tests in a package for your animal? Then you can easily create your own package. Use the selection tool to easily display the relevant tests for your animal.
Within our webshop we distinguish between different product types:
Parentage verification is based on the comparison of genetic information from Offspring, Dam and Sire.
Genetic Disease refer to genetic disorders in animals.
Genetic trait refers to the external characteristics of an animal such as coat colours and coat variants.
Our blood typing tests are only available for cats. We offer both DNA and seriological tests.
Our CombiBreed packages are composed for various breeds. These packages will be expanded as new tests become available.
External Lab test
External Lab tests are patented in certain countries. These tests will be forwarded to a partner laboratory in non-patented territory.
Using the selection tool you can filter on the tests that are relevant to you. All genetic disease related DNA tests are in many cases developed for specific breeds. This means that the DNA tests are relevant for one or more breeds. A number of DNA tests are suitable for all breeds.

When creating an account you can enter your personal details. Do you already have an account? Then log in with your details. Data can be changed at any time.
Step 3: animal data
In order to be able to perform the DNA tests and to recognize DNA material, we need the animal data. Enter the details of your animal, such as the unique identification number and name. This animal data is also shown on the report. Once the order has been processed, animal data can no longer be changed. So be careful when entering the animal data. Have you ordered multiple products? You can enter the animal data for each test or package.

Step 5: shipping DNA kit & sampling
After receiving the order you will receive a swab kit for dogs and cats. This swab kit contains instructions for removing buccal mucosa using the swab. We like to receive hairs to perform DNA tests for horses. Note that these hairs contain hair roots, because we are not able to extract DNA from hair samples that do not contain hair roots.
