DNA Update

08 May 2018
DNA Invoicing:   
Starting September 1, 2018, DNA invoicing will be done at the time of requesting the tests (instead of when results are received).  This will increase efficiencies and reduce the number of invoices you currently receive.  This is the first step to automate DNA kit requests - in the future you'll be able to order kits online.  Since there is a time element from ordering the kits to the completion of the testing - other type processing (registrations, THE enrollment, transfers) will not be delayed pending DNA payment for a period of time (to be determined).

Since there is a time element from ordering the kits to the completion of the testing - other types of processing (registrations, THE enrollment, transfers) will not be delayed pending DNA payment for a period of time, which will be determined.

We ask that if members have requested DNA kits in the past, or are requesting kits throughout the summer, that they please send the kits to the lab before September 1, 2018, so that the DNA invoicing transition is made as seamless as possible
 
New Genetic Condition Panel Pricing:
The Genetic Conditions Panel is undergoing changes to include all 7 of the genetic defects that American Simmental Association tracks. These defects are: AM, NH, CA, DD, OS, PHA, and TH. The new Genetic Conditions Panel will only be available with GGP-LD or GGP-HD testing and the add-on price for the panel will be $25. If the animal is not undergoing a GGP-LD or GGP-HD test, then defect testing will be $25 per defect.  If requesting the genetic conditions panel after a GGP-LD or GGP-HD test is complete, then the testing will be billed at single defect rates, which is $25 per defect.
