I am wanting to get my pup tested for EIC and CNM. Is there an institution that does both that is an acredited source? I was going to have them done through animal gentetics but they no longer do the EIC testing. Thanks

best to go to the groups that developed the tests, so Alfort, France for CNM and Univ. of MN for EIC. There have been issues with incorrect results and patent infringements from the other companies.

You can no longer get EIC tests from any other company other than the Univ. MN. They have applied for a patent for the test. VetGen, DDC, and Animal Genetics have all stopped testing for the EIC gene.

Raina, what's your source for this information?? U of MN has always had a patent pending since the test became commercially available...

Disregard, I just emailed Katie Minor... the U of Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic Lab (U of MN VDL) was finally awarded a patent for EIC in May 2012.
