A new canine genetic testing service, Canine Genetic Testing (CAGT) opens its doors for business on Monday November 22nd, 2021.
The service, which operates from the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge, offers a range of DNA tests for painful, blinding or otherwise debilitating inherited canine disorders.
The CAGT team is passionate about providing high-quality customer service to offer accurate, breed-relevant, validated DNA tests that can be used to reduce the incidence of disease in breeds at risk. Prior to moving to the University of Cambridge some members of the CAGT team worked in the Genetic Testing Service at the Animal Health Trust prior to its closure in July 2020, and bring with them considerable expertise in the field of canine genetics and genetic testing.
When CAGT opens on November 22nd a range of validated DNA tests will be offered and the number of tests available will increase over the coming weeks and months.
*Please note: The CAGT is still in the early stages of development and are currently only able to sell tests to customers based in the United Kingdom. There are plans to extend the services to customers outside of the United Kingdom as soon as possible.
