How to order AuthentiCell tests


The AuthentiCell testing kit is a quick, low cost and easy-to-use identity test for human cell lines. No need to extract DNA just pipette cells directly onto the FTA card provided and mail to our testing centre - no dry ice needed. The test itself includes the use of short tandem repeat (STR) loci as some of the most informative polymorphic markers in the human genome. 


Price: Tests are £135 each or £125 if five or more are ordered




How to order:

1. Order the FTA cards (below) 

2. Grow your cells to the recommended concentration 

3. Spot samples of human cells or DNA onto the FTA card and leave to dry

4. Return FTA cards using the pre-addressed envelope provided; no dry ice required!
