When submitting DNA samples on hair and blood cards, make sure those cards contain a barcode. NALF will not accept DNA submitted on cards that do not contain a bar code. It has come to our attention that AGI is no longer including barcodes on their hair and blood cards. NALF will not accept these as a barcode is REQUIRED. All samples submitted on hair or blood cards must contain a barcode. Members may request barcoded supplies through the DNA screen on their Member Site or by contacting the NALF office.


Do you need registration certificates for an upcoming show, a show validation, or any other purpose? NALF staff is happy to send the registration certificates to you. Please submit your request to the NALF office at least two weeks prior to the event in order to make sure they reach you on time. Requests may be made to Stephanie at steph@NALF.org.

Exhibitors do not need registration certificates for the NAILE open show and NWSS junior and open shows. However papers are required for the NAILE junior show - only original papers will be accepted, no photocopies or fax copies.
