Consider the genetic analysis services of ACGT to effectively make your case. We offer a suite of services for sample identity interrogation and verification using widely accepted genetic markers. We can also develop custom markers for your specific needs.
DNA SEQUENCING ANALYSIS
The precise nucleic acid sequence of a gene in your sample is determined after bulk PCR amplification or clonal selection, depending on the stringency of analysis desired. DNA sequencing by Sanger is the most definitive and widely-used method of sample identification in the industry.
SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE POLYMORPHISMS (SNP) ANALYSIS
Common variations at the nucleotide level in DNA provide a unique set of fingerprint-like markers that are used to evaluate and differentiate between samples.
SHORT TANDEM REPEAT (STR) FRAGMENT ANALYSIS
These species-specific genetic variations are another type of genetic fingerprint that are used to determine the type and number of subjects in a particular sample.
