Once you've found the PennGen tests you need, here's what you need to do next:
- Collect the appropriate sample(s) and label with animal’s call name and owner’s last name, date and test
For DNA Tests, 1–2 ml of whole EDTA blood or 2 cheek brushes per animal. For Metabolic Screening, Fanconi Syndrome Screening and Urine Cystinuria Screening, 3–5 ml of urine (free catch or cystocentesis) is required. We have very specific instructions on how to collect, store, and ship your samples. Please read these instructions as they will help you get the best results possible. Follow these links for specific sample collection and shipping instructions.
- Log in to your account on our Sample Submission Application and Create a Test Request
If you don't already have a PennGen account you can create an account here.
If you have an existing account, you can login here.
If you forgot your password, you can get a new password here.
After you login to your account, create animal record and then create a submission to request the specific test for your animal/patient. Print the submission sheet containing the animal information and submission ID. Go to the General Instructions page for more information.
- Ship your package to PennGen
Take the printed submission sheet, and pack it with your sample. Check to ensure the sample and the submission sheet are labeled with the animal’s call name, owner's last name, and the test being requested. Test-specific packaging and shipping instructions along with international shipping instructions can be found on the following links.
- Payment and Reports
It takes up to 4 weeks to complete testing the samples. After the testing is completed, you will receive a billing notification email. You will then be able to pay online with a credit card. Immediately after the payment is successfully made, you will be able to view the results online and a copy of the report will also be emailed at that time. Learn more about costs and payments here. Please note that you will not be able to pay until the requested testing is completed.
