Our DNA Test Kits
Our test kits for Alpaca Coat Colour Testing and DNA Parentage Verification are easy for owners to use and submit, keeping sampling costs and time to a minimum.
Join the colour genetic evenings with Carita!
22nd of February at 8pm Finland time via Teams
Joining is free of cost and the purpose is to provide the best support to our customers and help to learn to work with your test results.
We are also talking about some interesting cases when having the test results made a difference – and we would love to hear about yours! You can also join us to learn more before you order, but the main emphasis is to help those that have received their results.
Join the next evening chat on the 22nd of February at 8pm Finland time (breeders from other countries please check your equivalent time) by registering your interest on the right. (The language is English). Please register your interest by 21st of February the latest. Thank you!
The meeting is on Teams.
You will receive the link a day before, or earlier on the same day when the webinar is going to take place.

Find DNA Colour Tested
Herds In Europe
DNA Colour testing in alpacas is becoming a routine activity in Europe as breeders realise the value the test report offers to their breeding programme.
Many breeding and selection decisions are encompassing alpaca DNA colour tests as they have proven to increase progeny predictability and improve herd performance.
Knowing where to find herds that are testing is a great importance and our interactive map will help you identify where to look:
Why Colour Test Your Alpacas
To determine the background colour genetics in your herd and to add value
Identity mutations or uncertain patterns such as the grey gene
To make advanced breeding and informed purchase decisions
Increase progeny predictability in all colours including grey
”We would highly recommend the use of genetic colour testing to any alpaca breeder who is interested in increasing the predictability of colour in their breeding decisions. Finding those EE aa alpacas has been extremely useful as has identifying hidden grey. The latter has helped us avoid breeding decisions which may have resulted in less desirable outcomes such as BEW progeny and thus prevented a wasted year of breeding for that female. A very worthwhile investment.”
