Currently, our lab is set up to routinely process Embark-specific cheek swabs. We have non-standard ways of utilizing other samples, and this requires special ordering and handling. Atypical samples other than saliva are reviewed and accepted on a case-by-case basis. Email us at email@example.com, or, if you’re a breeder, firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about atypical samples.
Also, stay tuned! As Embark grows, we hope to expand our list of routinely accepted sources of DNA.
