Canine Coat and Nose Color Testing

C128-Canine Coat and Nose Color Test
Large Munsterlander


Presence of black and brown colors, and black or brown nose.
All Large Munsterlanders are black and white. Some are ticked/roan and others are plated, but solid black is not allowed. Because the breed originated from the German Longhair, there are still a few dogs that carry brown. Brown and white dogs cannot be bred. Therefore, this DNA test allows breeders to detect brown carriers.
Large Munsterlanders should not carry the "e" allele, but in very rare cases this allele may be present and will be reported if detected.

Please select the color of your dog to determine possible genotypes:
Genotype Main Color Nose Color Hidden Color
EEBB black black none
EEBb black black brown
EEbb brown brown none
Any single tested allele - $55.00*
Each additional allele - $20.00*
* subject to HST for Canadian residents only.

Note: Mask gene (Em) is considered as an individual test, separate from other alleles in E locus.

To help you to calculate the proper amount, please review the following example:
Testing for 3 alleles - E, B, and D - should be calculated as $55 + $20 + $20 = $95.00.
The price will be automaticaly calculated during the process of ordering a sample collection kit.
The following sample(s) can be submitted for the testing:
1. Blood sample in a lavender top tube.
2. Cheek swabs. Sample collection kit online: Order a Sample Collection Kit
Test results are usually available in 10 Business Days from the moment the samples arrive at the laboratory. Test results can be reported by e-mail, fax, or by phone.
HealthGene will provide a certificate for each test result.
