Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (CL) Test

For: Border Collies

OptiGen now offers the CL test for Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis in Border Collies. This test was developed in the laboratory of Dr. Alan Wilton, University of New South Wales, Australia, with support and encouragement from the Border Collie Club of NSW and others. The CL test detects the disease-causing mutation and identifies each dog as Normal/Clear, Carrier, or Affected. OptiGen has been granted an exclusive patent (pending) license to this test for the market in the U.S. and Canada, and a non-exclusive license for all other regions.  The OptiGen CL test will be performed on DNA extracted from a blood sample, which is generally considered the most reliable and verifiable DNA source for genetic testing.

If you submit a new blood sample to OptiGen, you may order both the CEA and CL tests on this same sample.

If you tested your Border Collie for CEA/CH previously, in almost all cases we have stored DNA that can be used for the CL test. OptiGen is allowing use of a stored sample only for the new CL test. (This is separate from "Long-Term Storage.") You may order the CL test online on a stored sample. Link to "Order Test" and complete the order form as usual. Be sure to indicate that this dog's sample already is at OptiGen by selecting "Blood sample is already at OptiGen under a long-term storage agreement." Mark this choice even if you did not specifically pay for Long-Term Storage.

The regular OptiGen price for the CL test is US$95.00. Our usual discounts for online ordering and 20/20 Clinics will apply. We realize our price is higher than that currently charged in Australia, however our price reflects our costs and includes a royalty fee paid to the patent (pending) holders for a research fund. As with all its testing, OptiGen pledges highest quality service.
