H476 CombiBreed FCI Group 03


The Combination Pack CombiBreed Group 03 is assembled for dogs within the FCI Breedgroup 3, Terriers. This package covers several important traits and can be based on samples from animals at any age. Information on individual tests is available at our website.

This Combination Package contains the following markers:
H303 Spinocerebellar ataxia
H312 Craniomandibular Osteopathy (CMO)
H324 FBN2
H357 Cone Rod Dystrophy 1 (crd1)
H358 Cone Rod Dystrophy 2 (crd2)
H360 Gallbladder Mucocele
H363 Hyperkeratosis, epidermolytic
H421 Hiplaxity 2
H485 Congenital Hypothyroidism (CHG) 2
H488 Congenital Hypothyroidism (CHG) 3
H492 Hyperkeratosis, palmoplantar
H509 Polycystic kidney disease (PKD1)
H677 Von-Willebrands Disease Type 1
H699 Hereditary Cataract 2 (HSF4)
H724 L2-HGA
H744 Von-Willebrands Disease Type 3
H804 Cerebellar Ataxia / NCL-A
H811 Hyperuricemia (HUU)
H849 Primary Lens Luxation (PLL)
H919 Hiplaxity 1

Test specific information

Dr. van Haeringen Laboratorium B.V. (VHL), introduces a different strategy for DNA tests for several genetic markers. Recently, technical improvements have allowed for the combination of several genetic markers in one test.

In addition to the strategy to introduce CombiBreed Combination Packages, we have compiled the packages by breed group and not for a specific breed.

Why CombiBreed packages per breed group?
• Our novel technology allows for logistical efficiency within our laboratory. This permits us to introduce the CombiBreed combination packages for a very competitive price.
• The CombiBreed packages contain DNA tests available in at least one breed within a breed group. Usually, scientific publications indicate if this genetic variation is validated for a breed.
• In our experience, the same genetic variation frequently occurs in closely related breeds, although the variation is only scientifically published in one breed. Mutations described and validated for a particular breed can thus also be present in other closely related breeds within a breed group. Laboratories performing these tests confirm the presence of mutations in other breeds.
• Our range of DNA tests will be reviewed several times per year. Newly available tests will be published on the website.
• We kindly request you to contact us (contactform) if your dog breed is not listed within a CombiBreed Group.

An actual overview of the genetic variation present in a breed can be assessed by performing the CombiBreed combination packages. Valuable information about previously unknown genetic variation may be found using our CombiBreed tests. However, ultimately our clients decide about the DNA tests ordered.

Turnaround time

The Turnaround Time (TAT) depends on various factors, such as the shipment time of your sample to the test location, the test method(s) and whether the tests are performed completely or partially by a Partner Lab or Patent owner.

The TAT of tests performed at our facilities is normally 10 working days after receipt of the sample at the testing laboratory (VHL, VHP or Certagen). For tests performed by a Partner Laboratory (so-called "partner lab test") or patent owner, the TAT is at least 20 working days after receipt of your sample. Because the shipment time to our Partner Labs or patent owner may vary due to factors we cannot influence, the mentioned 20 working days are therefore an estimate.

Sometimes it is necessary to re-run your sample. We call this a retest. In that case, the TAT will of course be extended.
