3 Critical Steps-

  • Check the Label ID to see if it matches the ID (national tag) of the animal. Ensure the hair is clean and dry with the roots from the end of the tail attached.


  • Carefully part the hairs in a spread-out format and carefully pull 40 to 60 root follicles for each sample.

  • Ensure good quality roots are taken as they contain DNA and not the hair itself.
