Cell Line Authentication

We offer a human cell line authentication (CLA) 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).  A minimum of 10 ng of gDNA is required for amplification and analysis.

We perform cell line authentication using a 48-capillary Applied Biosystems 3730xl DNA Analyzer.  Several levels of service are available to match your research needs. Please contact Alex Klug with questions or to provide feedback on CLA services.
