To submit a DNA testing application use the Legacy Services Application.
Within 24 hours you will receive a test form for submitting your sample via email, attach the tail hairs and mail direct to the lab address at the top of the test form.
Once your sample has been received at UCD-VGL you will receive an email from Legacy. When the results are reported they will also be forwarded via email. Dexters that have genotypes are entered into the Legacy Genotype Registry and the UCD Dexter database. Registration is $7.00 so be sure and check that first box on the application form!
Legacy suggests those new to the breed and genetic testing acquaint themselves by using the experience and expertise of Legacy services. Owners and breeders of longer duration may find it convenient to use Legacy as well. You can use the expertise of Legacy and still maintain a direct account. Legacy will transfer your cases on a monthly basis upon request.
Legacy worked with the University of California Davis Veterinary Genetics Laboratory (UCD-VGL) to develop direct testing accounts with Legacy pricing and if you choose to maintain a direct account please click here for information and instructions.
