LAREU has introduced new swabs produced by DNA Genotek for taking DNA samples. If you have some "old" Prionics swabs from previous orders they can still be used. The new swabs can be ordered as before through the DNA labs working together with LAREU. A description of how to use them is shown in pictures here (for more details see menu "DNA Test" and menu "FAQ" ).

The LAREU ordering system for DNA-typing and parentage verification for your alpacas and llamas is ready now. Please have a look for the detailed explications under the menu "DNA-Test" (in English, German and French).

22.02.12 Upon initiative of LAREU (see earlier News from 2008 and 2007) a world-wide standard for the marker set for DNA parentage testing has been released last year by the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG). LAREU is now in contact with several certified European gene laboratories to establish DNA typing according to the new standard. These laboratories will work together with LAREU to make the detailed DNA data available for the registered owners in the LAREU database.
At the moment some organizational details and the methods of material sampling are being discussed and worked out. We envisage the start of the DNA-tests by summer this year. The animal owners will be informed in due time via email.
