      About Us:

      Genetic tests by LABOGEN

      Many years' experience with highest quality standards

      LABOGEN has many years' experience developing and conducting genetic tests, especially in the areas of hereditary diseases, colour analyses, DNA profiles and parentage, as well as sex determination in birds. A distinguishing feature of our high standard of quality is the fact that all the results of our genetic tests are verified in a second independent test run before being sent out. Our workflows are accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. 

      This means that our tests take place in a reliable and constantly verifiable framework. As such, we not only undergo a stringent sequence of daily internal checks, but also regular external inspections in the form of cooperative testing.

      We store the DNA isolated to perform a genetic test for up to five years. This DNA can thus be used for genetic tests that become available in future or for parentage testing. In most cases the sample therefore does not need to be resent.

    International Dog Health Workshops



    The IPFD's signature events, the IDHWs bring together decision makers from professional, regulatory, national and regional, welfare and other organisations that are stakeholders in dog health, well-being and welfare and human-dog interactions under the tagline 'From Information and Collaboration to Action'. The 5th IDHW takes place 13-15 June 2024, in Helsinki, Finland and will be co-hosted by the Finnish Kennel Club.




    Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs Database


    The HGTD Database catalogs information provided voluntarily from genetic test providers (GTPs) including information on their company and services, quality measures and expertise, tests offered and more. We are continually engaging more GTP participants. IPFD has collated and assembled existing and new resources for genetic counselling and education and provided the foundation for further developments.




    Health Strategies Database for Dogs


    The HSDD Database includes breed-specific health/mentality testing requirements and recommendations established by Health Strategy Providers (HSPs) including kennel clubs, breed clubs, veterinary organizations, and others.



    Pedigree Breeds Database



    As of March 2024, our Pedigree Breeds Database lists 184 breeds. Information includes breed standards, population data, club newsletters, breed databases, videos and much more. Sections on Native Breeds and Additional Resources including Agria Breed Profiles; Globally Relevant Integrated Health Profile (GRIHP) articles, which describe the Big Picture of health on (all) conditions that are of interest within a breed; and associated IPFD WSAVA Meet the Breed articles are available. Many thanks to breed experts and clubs who share information on their breed with the Community.
