DNA requirements


Samples for Cell line authentication can be sent in tubes. Provide all the other samples in skirted 96-well plates.

  •     0,2 ml plate (Thermo Scientific Cat. # AB-0800_L or 4Titude Cat.# 4ti-0740)
  •     0,8 ml plate (Thermo Scientific Cat. # AB-0765)

All samples within a project should be diluted in the same concentration. Note! We recommend that the concentration is measured with two independent methods, e.g. in addition to NanoDrop with PicoGreen or Qubit.

  • Sequenom and Roche LightCycler: Provide 90 unique samples and two duplicate samples per 96-plate. The rest four wells are filled with controls by us.
  • Illumina arrays: In case / control projects you should consider duplicating one or more samples per 96-well plate for quality control.
