 About Optigen Testing


OPTIGEN is a service company established to provide DNA based diagnoses and

information about inherited diseases of dogs. We promise the highest quality diagnostic and testing services available in the fields of veterinary medical genetics and molecular

diagnostics. Our testing procedures are developed by research scientists and veterinarians associated with OPTIGEN, and are extensively field-tested in cooperation with breeders of dogs. No longer is there a need for test matings combined with expensive and potentially

inconclusive ERG testing for PRA. Because carriers and affected dogs having other

desirable traits can be bred to normal/clear dogs, the increased value of the genetically tested dog is very high. It's just the beginning... We are committed to an active program of continued research and development of faster, simpler, less-expensive testing procedures for all forms of retinal disease as well as for dozens of other genetic diseases that affect dogs.


OPTIGEN provides the highest diagnostic accuracy available, minimum turn-around time for report and interpretation, and full confidentiality. Each test is read independently by two staff scientists. Our interpretive report and website pages include information on: -

preventing genetic disease - how to safely eliminate undesired genes from breeding stock - how to maintain desired breeding lines if critical dogs are carriers or even affected - trends in disease frequency derived from our database.
