Changes to Angus Australia’s DNA Services

December 17, 2019 4:29 pm

Angus Australia members are advised of some upcoming changes to the DNA services that are available to Angus Australia members.

The revised DNA services and associated pricing will apply to DNA orders requested from January 1st, 2020 onwards, and have followed the annual renewal of service agreements with Angus Australia’s DNA service providers, Neogen and Zoetis, and a review of Angus Australia’s costs to deliver DNA services.

Most notably:

  • The price of genomic tests (Angus GS, HD50K, Angus uLD), and the associated price of genetic conditions when carried out as an add-on to the genomic tests, remains unchanged.
  • A surcharge of $3.30 will now apply for all DNA services provided by Neogen using hair samples. The introduction of this surcharge is consistent with the surcharge currently being charged to other Neogen customers, and reflects the additional costs of processing hair samples in the DNA laboratory by comparison to TSU samples.
  • The price of a base parentage panel, when conducted via Neogen, will increase from $27.00 to $30.25
  • The price of a base parentage panel, when conducted via Zoetis, will increase from $25.85 to $29.15
  • The price of standalone testing for genetic conditions (AM, CA, DD, DW, MA, NH, OH & OS), when conducted via Neogen or Zoetis, will increase from $22.55 to $25.85
  • The price of standalone testing for genetic traits (coat colour, myostatin), when conducted via Neogen or Zoetis, will increase from $22.55 to $25.85.
  • The price of Angus HeiferSELECT, when conducted via Zoetis, will increase from $48.50 to $51.45.
  • Angus Australia will now provide TSU racks free of charge to members who are placing orders containing 50 or more TSU samples.

An updated list of the DNA services offered by Angus Australia and their associated pricing, is provided below.
