Covid-19 Update: Mr Dog Poop is still operating although with a skeleton staff to maintain social distancing. As long as the US Post Office is open and delivering poop to our door, we will stay open.

With most of the human testing labs working on Covid-19 testing, there is a severe lack of lab supplies across the country. We have been shipping our own lab supplies to organizations and communities in need of surgical masks, gloves, testing reagents and lab consumables. However, we still have adequate supplies to service our own customers since most communities have closed their leasing offices. There are currently no delays in testing or onboarding new customers.

Mr Dog Poop's DNA lab and most of our equipment was custom built for our specific needs. Since there are not a lot of dog poop DNA labs, it may not look like the other labs you may have seen. In order to be as efficient as possible and keep our prices low we had to develop new processes, tools and customize our work space.

Our lab operates more like a level 4 containment facility than what someone might expect from a company testing dog poop. That is so we can insure the safety of our lab techs working with dog poop as well as insuring the integrity of thousands of samples being processed.

Access To Mr Dog Poop's DNA Lab

The lab facility is divided into separate rooms secured with computerized locks requiring RFID cards and pass codes. Nobody can get into an area they should not access. We follow the same protocols used in human criminal forensic testing labs to secure each sample.

This is known in the industry as a "SECURE LAB".

  PCR Lab

Using completely isolated rooms allows for all processes of the DNA identification process to occur simultaneously rather than using the same work space for multiple steps. This greatly improves our work flow and allows us to complete identifications that much sooner.

Our PCR lab can process around 5,000 samples each day while new samples are being received and processed in the adjacent extraction lab. We have streamlined this process with our new facility which was specifically desined for efficiency.

DNA Work Stations

All DNA work is done in our custom designed and built stainless steel anti-contamination hoods. These were designed by us and custom built right at our facility with a height adjustable work surface, ultraviolet lights for complete decontamination between each work cycle and are fully enclosed when not in use to insure no contamination from any airborne particles.

Our lab uses primarily stainless steel surfaces which are easy to clean and impervious to the ultraviolate light that is used to destroy any DNA left on work surfaces.

  Our lab techs use the latest equipment, tools and processes to test all samples. No expense has been spared in building a facility that can securely, accurately and efficiently process millions of DNA samples as we look into the future growth of our company.

Equipment is serviced, calibrated and tested at regularly scheduled intervals to insure that results are always within acceptable parameters.

DNA Sample Intake

All shipments of swabs and poop from properties are received in the DNA lab where they are assigned ID numbers that will track them through a complex process of DNA extraction, amplification of markers, capilary electrophoresis, database importation and matching and a final manual examination of electropherograms to verify the data as part of our quality control process.

The samples take several days to complete because each step requires its own equipment and processes unique to that step.

 

 

 

Since we only test dog poop, we can have dedicated stations to manage each step, sort of a dog poop DNA assembly line. Samples are grouped into racks of 48 samples and moved over to the extraction hoods. Pure DNA is extracted from the samples and then frozen while they wait for their turn in the PCR lab to amplify the 23 markers that we use for matching.

Why We Run Our Own DNA Lab

One of the most common questions that we are asked is if we have our own lab or send our samples to an outside lab. While would could certainly achieve good quality results with an outside lab, the cost would be much higher and it would limit our ability to change or improve our product or grow beyond the capacity of that lab.

By having our own lab we can insure the absolute integrity of every sample, make sure we always have the capacity to process high volumes of samples and control the time it takes to process each sample.

We have developed our own processes, built our own tools, created our own multiplex with 23 genetic markers and continue to improve that process as needed. Having our own lab allows us to make improvements almost daily, deploy unique techniques and continue to service our growing customer base.

In 2018 we realized we were quickly outgrowing our existing facility and purchased a building with over 8000 sqft of working space needed to expand the lab, kit manufacturing and shipping operation. We have plans to add an additional 10,000 sqft over the next few years to further support our rapid growth.

Our lab has unmatched capabilities, resources to service the dog poop issues at properties across the country. This is just one of the reasons that Mr Dog Poop is the most trusted name in Dog Poop DNA testing.
