For Full Service Samples:
  • Please submit at least 20ng/uL of your genomic DNA in at least 5uL final volume, diluted with water if necessary

For No QA Samples:
  • Please submit 10ng of your genomic DNA in 5-10uL final volume, diluted with water if necessary
  • Note: due to the Core facility not providing quality assessment (QA) for these samples, any troubleshooting required by the Core will result in additional charges

For No QA or Analysis Samples:
  • Please submit at least 5ng/uL of your genomic DNA in at least 5uL final volume, diluted with water if necessary
  • Note: due to the Core facility not providing QA for these samples, any troubleshooting required by the Core will result in additional charges. STR database comparison and report generation will not be completed with this mode of service

After form submission on iLab a member of the Core will contact you to schedule a time to deliver or send samples. Human Cell Line Authentication assays will be completed on Tuesday of each week. You must have your samples submitted by 4pm Monday in order to have your samples put on the run the following day. For any questions regarding the modes of service offered or for assistance in determining what mode is most appropriate for you, please contact Kristina Vartanian at vartania@ohsu.edu
