TruSeq Bovine Parentage Sequencing Panel for MiniSeq



Product Highlights

This solution for parentage testing of multiple beef and dairy cattle breeds has added genotyping of relevant traits. By offering more information in a single assay than from parentage testing alone, service labs can use the TruSeq Bovine Parentage Sequencing Panel to make more informed herd management recommendations.

  • Includes all International Society of Animal Genetics (ISAG) recommended content, plus disease-associated and economically relevant traits
  • Content design, high accuracy, and reliability eliminate need for multiple or repeat testing
  • Analysis software converts sequencing results to genotype calls without the need for bioinformatics expertise

The TruSeq Bovine Parentage Sequencing Panel uses proven Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to deliver accurate genotyping results for SNP-based parentage determination in cattle. The high accuracy and reliability of Illumina sequencing reduces the amount of required testing and shortens the time to answer, leading to efficiency gains and cost savings. It features a streamlined workflow that goes from DNA to report in 1.5 days with minimal hands-on time.

Have confidence that the typing result is accurate, the first time. TruSeq Bovine Parentage has been tested with multiple breeds, DNA inputs, and extraction methods. It provides deep sequencing coverage across SNPs.
