Misidentification of human cell lines is a common problem that leads to irreproducible research in the Life Sciences. Over the years, use of contaminated cell lines has increased due to poor techniques, inadequate authentication protocols, and sharing of false cell lines among researchers. These concerns can be readily resolved by the implementation of the Standard STR protocol –authentication of human cell lines by STR profiling. In this webinar, we will discuss the recent advances in STR profiling technologies and will delve into further detail on how the Standard STR protocol is transforming scientific practices.
Register for a session - 10:00 AM (ET) or 3:00 PM (ET).
