* Does your breed experience unique problems? We may be able to develop a test for you.

Embark uses a research grade, CLIA-certified SNP chip that identifies breed, ancestry, genetic disease risks and other traits, like coat and color, with a simple cheek swab.

Our panel screens 113 AKC-recognized breeds for all diseases (over 160+) for which genetic screens are recommended. 

After careful & detailed analysis, our scientists prepare your results, delivered to you via your online profile.

Coefficient of Inbreeding: an Embark for Breeders Feature

We know that all breeds are different. Just like some breeds excel at different sports or disciplines, the way a genetic mutation impacts health risk is often breed-specific. Embark tests for genetic risk factors relevant to your breed, but will also screen over 160 genetic mutations linked to diseases in other breeds, allowing you and us to learn more about the frequency and behavior of rare genetic mutations in all dogs.

 We offer results for nearly all genetic mutation tests recommended by all national breed clubs. All of our results are accepted by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA).

    LEARN MORE ABOUT COI

    Coefficient of Inbreeding (COI) is a measure of how genetically similar a dog’s parents are to each other. From a genetic point of view, this translates to what percentage of the genome is identical on both its maternal and paternal strands (also known as homozygosity).
