Ordering DNA tests

  1. Fill out the DNA ordering form once you have taken your DNA samples. Please note that Neogen prefer wet TSU samples.
  2. Email your order form to dna@pbbnz.com
  3. Mail your TSU to the PBB offices, 75 South Street, Feilding 4702.
  4. The team will double check all the submitted info before we start shipping the samples to AU (PBB has an export permit in place for all breeds). Some charges may apply if we need to make changes to the submitted information.
  5. Once we ship the samples to AU, you will get a notification from us. From this point we expect the turnaround time to be around 7 weeks.
  6. Once the tests are completed, PBB will be in contact with you. PBB will have complete oversight of the order status so you will be able to ring PBB at any time to get a status update.

You will also be emailed a copy of the parent verification report.

The genomic profiles will also be loaded into SIL by the neXtgen Agri team so that they can be used together with your performance data to calculate your BVs.
