STR Analysis for Human Cell Line Authentication
Amplifies ANSI-0002-Recommended Loci
Tolerates higher DNA amounts. Better balance for aneuploid samples
Reduced PCR Time. Amplification in less than 1.5 hours
10-Locus STR System for Cell Line Authentication
Cell line misidentification or contamination can derail your research. Fortunately, there is an easy way to confirm the identity of human cell lines in your laboratory: short tandem repeat (STR) analysis.
To standardize STR analysis for human cell line authentication, the American Tissue Culture Collection (ATCC) Standards Development Organization Workgroup published the ASN-0002-2011, which recommends the use of at least eight STR loci (TH01, TPOX, vWA, CSF1PO, D16S539, D7S820, D13S317 and D5S818) plus Amelogenin for gender identification.
Economical, Efficient Cell Line Authentication
The GenePrint® 10 System is a 10-locus multiplex system designed to generate a multi-locus DNA profile by amplifying human genomic DNA extracted from cell pellets, cell culture enrichment media and by direct amplification from storage cards. The system includes all reagents required for successful identification and authentication of human cell lines, as well as detection of cell line contaminants; the small kit size and lower reaction volume makes GenePrint® 10 an economical choice for confirmation of cell line identity.
