Individual Identification and Paternity Tests for Bovine

Individual Bovine identification and paternity testing are tests intended to verify the identification of a Bovine and its paternity by analyzing the STR genotype of its chromosome.

  • - Principle of testing DNA is a genetic matter that contains all the genetic information of the object, and every Bovine has its own DNA genotype, which distinguishes it from other Bovine, by inheriting DNA from the bull/Bovine.
    The DNA genotype is the genetic information specific to a Bovine that enables the identification of the Bovine, and is the combination of gene loci featuring chain repetition.
    Individual identification is a test intended to determine the identicalness of DNA by verifying through analysis whether the DNA genotypes extracted from two specimens of the applicable Bovine match each other. In addition, paternity testing is a method intended to verify paternity by examining whether the genotype of a calf and that of a paternal bull or maternal Bovine match each other, utilizing the genetic characteristics. DowGene DNA Testing Company performs analyses and determination based on 11 gene loci recommended by ISAG (International Foundation for Animal Genetics).
  • - Testable specimens Blood, meat, hair follicles, saliva, serum, etc.
  • - Test Procedures Request for testing → Collection of specimen and acceptance of application → DNA extraction → PCR amplification → Genotype analysis and interpretation → Notification of results
  • - Test ResultsThe individual identification and paternity testing of a Bovine is available through the analysis of DNA from the specimen. The identification of a Bovine is established when the genotypes of all gene loci tested match.
  • - Application cases of testing
    • • When the verification of object identity is required in the production and distribution stages
    • • When the confirmation of a lineage relationship is required
    • • Other cases that require paternity testing for clear lineage demonstration
