Certification and accreditation of DNA-based genetic laboratories

This section provides information on the certification/accreditation of DNA-based genetic laboratories. In particular, two types of accreditation have been developed by ICAR for these laboratories:

  1. Two DNA-based technology services (Accreditation of DNA Data Interpretation Centres and the Parentage SNP Exchange “GenoEx-PSE” service) and
  2. The accreditation of DNA genetic laboratories for parentage testing in cattle by SNP and STR
