Frequently Asked Questions

Genotyping and Authentication of Cell Lines

Scientific questions
Why should cell lines be authenticated?

Published studies with incorrectly assigned cell lines are one of the causes of non-reproducible scientific data. For this reason, among others, the NIH has made recommendations that should help to improve this situation (www.nih.gov/research-training/rigor-reproducibility/principles-guidelines-reporting-preclinical-research). This includes the authentication of cell lines, i. e. confirmation of the use of the correct cell line by genotyping, as well as proof of the absence of contamination, e. g. with mycoplasmas or other (e. g. human) cell lines.

Technical questions
Processing time of an examination order

The processing time is 10 working days after receipt of the sample. As a rule, however, the result is communicated much earlier.
