STR DNA Profiling

It has been found out that 15-25% of human cell lines which are used in research are incorrectly identified or contaminated with other cell lines. This often results in erroneous results. It is the reason why most scientific journals and supporting scientific research funds have imposed higher requirements on cell lines identification.  The recommended method for the molecular genetic identification of human cell lines is the technology of short tandem repeat analysis (STR) via capillary electrophoresis technique.

For the cell lines identification we offer COrDIS Plus kit. 19 STR-markers, including the 8 markers recommended by ATCC, as well as DNA locus encoding human amelogenin can be analyzed by using the kit.
