This PCR-based genotyping system helps validate the parentage of horses quickly and accurately. The StockMarks® for Horses Equine 17-plex Genotyping Kit includes 17 microsatellite markers recommended by the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG), co-amplified in a single tube. Protocol sold separately (Cat. No. 4327973).

• PCR process provides greater accuracy than serological methods.
• ISAG-recommended, standardized loci ensure accurate testing.
• Proprietary primer purification process ensures optimal data quality.

Accurate with All Sample Types
All StockMarks® kits amplify microsatellite markers by means of PCR and fluorescent dye-labeled primers. PCR is more accurate than serological typing and requires less sample, is easier to standardize and automate, and is successful with all types of samples, including blood, semen, and hair. Additionally, when fluorescent dye is used to label PCR primers, multiple amplifications can be performed in a single reaction.

Microsatellite-Based Kits Provide Accurate Parentage Testing
The StockMarks® Horse Genotyping System comprises the StockMarks® for Horses Equine Genotyping Kit. This kit both confirm or exclude parentage, using the highly accurate and informative polymorphic short tandem repeats (STRs), also known as microsatellites, which are evenly distributed across the genome.
