Genomic Services | SNPTrace – sample tracking

The Fluidigm SNPtrace™ panel has been designed for use in biobanks and clinical studies. It provides a cost effective method of tracking the identity and quality of human DNA samples and helps prevent the erroneous use of misidentified samples in downstream experiments such as whole genome sequencing. Please contact us for pricing or a quote.

Example applications of the SNPtrace™ panel include:

  • Sample verification
  • Chain of custody
  • Cell line authentication (pre-publication validation)
  • Tumour/normal tissue pairing (pre-publication validation)
  • Sample matching for longitudinal studies

The panel consists of 96 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that provide critical information on:

  • Gender
  • Quality
  • Cross contamination
  • Ethnicity
  • Polymorphic SNPs
  • Custom SNPs
