New core service available for authenticating human cell lines

The OHSU DNA Services Core has just launched a new human cell line authentication service.  The assay run in the core uses the Promega GenePrint® 10 system and the Applied Biosystems 3730xl DNA Analyzer to confirm the identity of human cell lines and detect the presence of cell line contaminants through short tandem repeat (STR) analysis. This assay co-amplifies and detects of 9 STR loci plus Amelogenin (gender determining locus), and requires a DNA input of 10 ng.

Several levels of service are available to match your research needs and budget. For details and more information, visit the DNA Services website or contact Taylor Jones.
