The easiest and cheapest way is to request the tests directly on our website. Click on "Request your DNA tests here" or "log in" to go to your account. If you do not have an account yet, you have to create one first. When you have created an account you can put in the ringnumbers of the pigeons that have to be tested and the parents you want to test by clicking on "create order" to request your DNA tests. Request the tests you want (parentage, gender and/or quality genes); you immediately see the costs of those tests. You also have to put in the veterinarian that will take the samples (feathers) from the pigeons and send them to us. As soon as you have completed the order you and your vet will receive a confirmation e-mail with the documents to sign by you and your vet and the labels with ringnumbers and barcode to stick on the sample sachets. We send the sachets and labels to you and/or your vet for free.
Use these standard plastic sachets and labels to do sampling by the vet and save 5€ extra cost!
By requesting your own DNA tests online you also save administration costs!
The benefits of self-input:
• Minimize the probability of errors in the listing of the ring numbers
• Easy download and print agreement owner – vet - PiGen
• Email with PDF file of all the samples to take so you can print the labels (these labels can be sent to you by mail, mail to: email@example.com)
• Easier to check if the parent has already DNA profiles
If we need to put your DNA samples in our system, an administration fee of 5 € per sample will be charged.
We thank you for using our services. We keep aiming for the highest standard possible in racing pigeons DNA testing.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
