Service Labs

Animal Genetics Laboratory

The Animal Genetics Laboratory offers DNA testing used for identification, parentage verification, and determination of specific homozygous/heterozygous gene mutations in animals. The analysis provides useful information for diseases, coat colors, as well as physical traits. Currently, the lab provides routine services for testing horses, cattle, and donkeys.

Trace Element Research Laboratory

The Trace Element Research Laboratory (TERL) is dedicated to providing students with a high-quality education in environmental chemistry. TERL supplies sponsors with high-quality trace element data and services in trace metals for environmental samples. We have participated in most major US environmental monitoring programs over the past decade and have an established reputation for accurate measurement of trace metal levels in samples from even the most pristine environments.
