Here at Cellmark we're passionate about DNA profiling and Forensic Science and wanted to be able to offer our DNA Protected dogs (and their humans!) the opportunity to get an image of their DNA profile as our scientists see it in the laboratory. A DNA Protected forensic profile is a fantastic talking point - it's the ultimate CSI portrait of your dog and provides a unique way to celebrate what makes them one of a kind.
Every DNA Protected profile comes with an interesting and informative leaflet that explains the science and history behind DNA profiling and the Forensic Dog DNA database.
Forensic DNA profiling captures the variability in your dog's DNA. Although it can’t tell you anything about the dog’s breed, this is the gold standard identification technology used by forensic scientists to differentiate one dog from another. It is nature’s very own powerful identification system and having your dog’s profile on the Dog DNA database could play an important role in ensuring that your dog is safely returned if stolen.
How you order your profile will depend on whether your dog has already been DNA Protected:
If your dog is already on the Forensic DNA database - just visit our online shop and add the DNA profile product to your shopping bag. At the checkout you'll have the opportunity to enter your unique database barcode and will be asked to confirm your dog's name.
If you want to DNA protect your dog and order the profile print at the same time there is an option to do this when you order your 'Dog DNA Sampling kit'.
