Please support the Glen DNA Archive

The International Glen DNA Archive provides a facility to store Glen DNA, along with supporting pedigree and health information, for use in future health research projects.

​All you need to do to support this important health initiative, is send off five buccal (cheek) swabs from your Glen, plus a copy of your Glen’s pedigree and the submission form, to the Animal Health Trust.

To request a swab kit (one kit per Glen), please email the Animal Heath Trust:

Subject:Swab kit request
NamePlease provide your title and first & last names
AddressPlease provide your full postal address including post / zip code & country
Number of kitsPlease indicate the number of swab kits you require (one kit per Glen)

Contributions to the DNA Archive are welcome from non-UK resident Glens, as well as those living in the UK … from Glens of all ages and health status.
