EVG laboratory started its operation in 2010 to be the first commercial lab in the region to focus on genetic testing in animals and veterinary medicine. To veterinarians in the region, we also offer hormone and allergy testing in collaboration with our European partners. In years of operation we gained trust of the majority of veterinary clinics in Slovenia and many vets, owners and breeders across Europe and USA.
EVG laboratory focuses on the research and development of highly specific molecular-genetic tests, which represent a big part of our services. With a genetic test, we analyse DNA, which gives us insight in the development of certain diseases and influence breeding and therapeutic decisions. There is more and more awareness of the importance of genetic diseases in purebred animals and some of the tests are already obligatory in certain breeds in order to get a breeding license.
Our laboratory is equipped with high throughput and modern equipment for molecular genetic analysis (PCR, Real Time PCR, DNA sequencing, DNA profiling) which enables us to perform fast and quality services. A lot of attention is focused on quality assurance in order to perform all analysis according to internationally recognized standards. We employ three highly qualified experts in the field of genetics, veterinary medicine and microbiology holding a PhD and publications in international scientific journals.
In 2019, the company introduced a quality management system in accordance with the ISO 9001: 2015 standard, for which we also obtained a certificate.
EVG d.o.o. received co-financing of eligible costs in 2019 - Voucher for certificates. The investment is co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
Our laboratory is a member of the International Society of Animal Genetics (ISAG) and regularly participates in its inter-laboratory controls. Based on the results of the last inter-laboratory control, the laboratory was ranked in the highest quality class for which it obtained a certificate.
