Can a cheek swab provide as accurate a canine DNA testing sample as a blood test?
Because DNA is found in almost all cell types, chances are high that you will be able to gather an appropriate sample. There are drawbacks, however, including a risk of contamination and too few cells being obtained for successful testing.
In order to avoid collecting an unusable sample size, BioPet Vet Lab includes a card that changes color to indicate that a sufficient sample is present. Of the nearly 1 million DNA samples submitted to the American Association of Blood Banks in 2006, over 98% were buccal cheek swabs. Less than 1% were blood samples.
