Limited services are available for extraction of RNA from blood, tissue, and cells.
Sample Quality Analysis
Two microfluidics-based systems, a Bio-Rad Experion and an Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer, are available for the analysis of DNA, RNA, proteins and cells.
The Applied Biosystems AmpFlSTR system is used to screen 15 different small tandem repeat (STR) markers and the Amelogenin locus for gender determination. This service is intended for Human Cell line identification and is for research purposes only. These STR markers include those genotyped by the ATCC.
Tiling and Promoter Arrays for Human, Mouse, and other organisms
Promoter (Human Promoter 1.0R Array) and tiling (various organisms) arrays available on our Affymetrix GeneChip system can be used for transcriptome mapping as well as in discovering sites of DNA- protein interaction (ChIP-chip), of DNA methylation (MeDIP-chip), and of sensitivity to DNase (DNase Chip).
