All-inclusive service for livestock samples

LGC's cost effective all-inclusive service makes it simple to genotype large sample numbers.

The livestock industry is challenged with increasing demands on the development speed of superior production traits. LGC has developed the all-inclusive service to support the livetock industry in meeting those demands and accelerating the development of superior production traits.

LGC’s complete livestock service package includes:



  • Low cost per sample = more samples & SNPs = faster to new traits = faster to market
  • Convenient “all-in-one” service package - no lab required
  • Including support from your dedicated project manager 
  • Flexible and robust KASP assays



  • Animal samples only (buccal swabs, blood, ear punch, enquire if not listed). Samples provided in 96-well plate format.
  • Minimum of 48 samples per project.
  • Standard turnaround time is 5 weeks. Bespoke turnaround times available on request.


Services included:

DNA extraction service
DNA is extracted from the sample material using LGC’s DNA extraction chemistry and instrumentation.

New assay design
New assay design is included in the price per sample and you will be assisted in the assay design by a dedicated project manager.

SNPs  or InDels are subsequently genotyped using KASP genotyping. You will receive an email with a link to your genotyping data file on our secure web server. 

Optional Services

All-inclusive genotyping service is based on in-silico designed KASP genotyping assays. The service does not include wet lab validation of assays or re-design as standard. Options are available, please enquire for pricing.
