DNA Price Changes

 

The prices of several DNA tests have changed recently due to add-on traits becoming available on the GGP100K and other tests seeing an increase in cost from Neogen. Neogen’s cost of testing (pipette tips, for instance) has increased and in response, ASA will increase the cost of some tests. Additionally, there will be a charge (at cost) for STR parentage, which previously was being covered by ASA. STR (Short Tandem Repeat) parentage is the older parentage test that is necessary when an animal’s parent was tested before the current SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) parentage was implemented. For example, a sire with STR parentage only could not be compared to a calf with SNP parentage. Both STR parentage and SNP parentage must be obtained on the calf. In cases where both STR and SNP parentage is necessary, if a GGP100K is run, the member will be charged the $15 add-on price for STR parentage; SNP parentage is still included in this panel. If only parentage is being run, the member will be charged $33. ASA always encourages running a new SNP parentage test on animals with STR parentage on file whenever possible. SNP parentage has been used at ASA for many years so this should not be a common issue.
