This proven low-cost tool of identification brings justice and safety to the Horse and is based upon the same process as the FBI's own CODIS crime laboratory. The CODIS system (Combined DNA Information Systems) enables crime-fighters nationally and internationally to compare DNA profiles and information electronically in an instant.
The Equine CODIS system identifies the Horse to an accuracy of 99.999999999999 percent and is now available.
Raymond Sigler, President of Wall Street Detectives Inc. and developer Equine CODIS and the EDNA test, said, "We are on the cutting edge of technology now applied to the Horse, enabling an Equine Identification number (EIN) to track, trace and provide absolute identification. The Horse can now have its own E.I.N. number, and why not all our vehicles have a vehicle identification number, called a 'VIN'. Ultimately I believe this testing will cause insurance premiums to fall, and will result in a distinct decline in Horse theft and related Fraud, as well."
Dr. Gus Cothran, who supervises the Equine CODIS program for Wall Street Detectives at Texas A&M College, recently stated, "The Equine Codis system uses the identical technology as the FBI Human version testing the similar 13 genetic markers found in common with Humans. The prevalent differences between the tests are CODIS uses only the Horse specific markers and satellites."
Recently, the US Department of Homeland Security approved a $5 million grant to fund a fourth year of product research and development at Texas A&M University's National Center for Foreign Animal and Zoonotic Disease Defense in short "FAZD". Zoonotic deceases are any infectious disease communicable from animals to Humans under natural conditions, but can be manufactured by Man for other purposes. If an incidence such as a natural or terroristic disaster occurs your Horse could be easily traced, identified and tracked using Equine CODIS.
Since Horses don't have fingerprints, DNA is the only absolute accurate method for identification, as microchips, tattoos or branding can be altered, changed or manipulated easily.
Equine CODIS could be thought as Nationalization of Horse Identification, if so it will be good for all concerned.
