Testimonials for STR Profiling Cell Authentication Service
It was easy to handle, because it was just counting cell numbers and then spotting it on FTA paper. It was also helpful as the results arrived earlier than I expected.
In our laboratory, we are strictly managing the passage of cell lines. This time, we checked whether the quality of the cell lines is certainly maintained by our management system that keeps them as low passage as possible, using the STR cell certification test kit (Two cell lines used: one is relatively new and the other is the one being used for a long time in our lab).
As a result, there was no cross contamination and both strains 100% matched, so we could confirm that our management system was working appropriately. From now on, I would like to perform STR analysis regularly to check the quality of cell lines in our lab.
