Individual Identification and Paternity Tests for Porcine

Individual Porcine identification and paternity testing are tests intended to verify the identification of a Porcine and its lineage 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 Porcine has it s own DNA genotype, which distinguishes it from other Porcines, by inheriting DNA from the paternal/maternal Porcine. The DNA genotype is the genetic information specific to a Porcine, which enables the identification of the Porcine, 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 Porcine match each other. In addition, paternity testing is a method intended to verify the paternity by examining whether the genotype of a Porcineling and that of a paternal Porcine or maternal Porcine match each other, utilizing the genetic characteristics. DowGene DNA Testing Company makes a determination by analyzing 11 gene loci in accordance with the guidelines provided 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 identification of a Porcine is established when the genotypes of all gene loci tested through the DNA analysis are revealed to 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
