CO1 DNA Barcoding

  • Confirms the cell line species of origin.
  • Utilizes sequence data for appx 660 base pair region of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (CO1) gene
  • Complies with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) guidelines for species identification of animal cell lines1.
  • Appropriate for less commonly used species of origin cell lines such as insect, drosophila, cow, pig, Syrian hamster, ferret, and other mammalian species. 
  • Call for more information.
