STR/Microsatellite Analysis


Genetic Contamination Quality Control

(Formerly Microsatellite Genetic Contamination Screen)

This short panel of microsatellite markers (27 mouse-specific markers or 31 rat-specific markers) can be used to screen colonies for genetic contamination.

• Determine if genetic contamination has occurred in a colony of mice or rats

• Test for genetic variability over time in a rodent breeding or production colony

• Confirm the sample tissue is derived from an inbred strain of mice or rats*

• Analysis results in 7 business days


* Please note that this profile provides a yes or no answer for inbred strains.
