Cell Line Authentication

We currently offer a new human cell line authentication service that uses Promega's GenePrint® 10 system to confirm the identity of human cell lines through short tandem repeat (STR) analysis and to detect the presence of cell line contaminants. This service provides co-amplification and detection of 9 STR loci plus Amelogenin (the gender determining locus), and can amplify DNA with inputs of 10ng. 

We perform cell line authentication with our state-of-the-art, 48-capillary Applied Biosystems 3730xl DNA Analyzer. Several levels of service are available to match your research needs and finances. We have a "break-even" fee structure, i.e., charge what it costs to provide the service. Please send feedback on the data quality and turnaround time.
