The LAREU register has been switched to a multilingual version. The languages ??German, English and French are available.

Happy New Year to all members of LAREU. We welcome you with a new menu "Offer", where you can offer your alpacas or llamas for sale or stud service to the other owners of alpacas and llamas registered with LAREU. The fee is 5 Euros per animal per year. A description how the offering works you can find in the FAQ .


Due to service work on the LAREU Web server, the registry will not be avialable today. We ask for your understanding.


New submenu under "Change": "My animals @ NoOwner". You get a list of your animals transfered (by intention or accidentally) to the "NoOwner" area (see also FAQ )

LAREU-members can order the import of the DNA-information of their animals from previous analyses (e.g. via camelid associations). For this a new sub-menue was introduced into the DNA-Order menu ("Import existing DNA-Information"), which is handled by the Certagen Labortory.


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 Registration has been ported to a new machine. Press "Refresh" once on this page before pressing "Login" (or F5 when using Internet Explorer or Firefox). The "refresh" action does not need to be repeated for the next "login".

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.
