DNA REMINDERS

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.

DNA Turnaround: 3 weeks

Final MOE point totals will be posted on the
