The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Breed Detection

Behind The Science

To provide accurate breed detection results you need three things: a large breed database, a sophisticated algorithm and a significant number of markers strategically placed across the genome. WISDOM PANELTM canine DNA tests feature the largest breed database of over 350 breed, types and varieties represented in more than 15,000 samples. We examine your dog’s DNA at 1800+ points (markers) and send the data to a computer that evaluates them using an advanced algorithm and more than 17MM calculations. The algorithm uses information from our extensive sample database to analyse your dog’s potential family trees going back three generations. After giving each of the millions of possible combinations a score based on how well it matches your dog’s data, the computer selects the tree with the overall best score and that is what is reported in your dog’s results.

Quality And Accuracy

The process by which we determine the breed ancestry of your dog is called genotyping and is conducted on a canine IlluminaTM InfiniumTM chip created specifically for our tests. These chips are processed and analyzed at Eurofins Genomics laboratories, the world’s largest genomics testing facility and a member of Eurofins Scientific, the global leader in bio-analysis. Eurofins Genomics is ISO 17025 certified, and has been obtaining rank 1 over the last 15 years on all ISAG (International Society of Animal Genetics) ring trials, for canine and all other tested animal species.
