Human Cell Line Validation

The Fragment Analysis service offers the AMPFLSTR Identifiler Plus Assay for cell line identification sold by Applied Biosystems. This assay does identify Human Genomic DNA for 15 tetranucleotide repeat loci and the Amelogenin gender determination marker. Our 3730XL Genetic Analyzer uses five fluorescent dyes per lane permitting a 16 locus multiplex and a fifth dye for an internal size standard to correct for variability between lanes.
