NEOGEN's SNP Parentage test targets over 110 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). These DNA markers are used to create a unique DNA profile or "fingerprint" for the cat. NEOGEN's Feline SNP Parentage test includes markers suggested to the International Society of Animal Genetics (ISAG) for international adoption.

An individual animal will have two copies of each DNA, or alleles, at each marker site; one from their mother and the other from the father. Comparing the profiles of kitten to their mother as well as father enables confirmation that those individuals "qualify" or are "excluded" as a possible parent.
