Cultured Human Cell Line Authentication

General Information

The authentication of cultured human cell lines has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as a must in the medical research community. The Applied Genomics Technology Center (AGTC) has vast experience in short tandem repeat profiling using the Promega GenePrint 10 kit which is a reliable and affordable tool that can be used for verification purposes.  For more information, click here.

Sample Submission

Please contact Nicole Ducharme prior to collecting and submitting samples for cell line authentication.  This way we can determine if your particular sample set is compatible with our validated method.  If deemed compatible, sample drop off will be authorized and coordinated.
