Fingerprinting by STR Analysis/Cell Line Authentication

The GRCF offers a short tandem repeat (STR) profiling service to customers who wish to confirm the identity of a line by comparison to a known profile or to establish an identity profile for a new cell line generated locally. For further information, including pricing, see our Cell Line Authentication section.

Fingerprinting by Taqman OpenArray Barcode Chip

This OpenArray panel consists of 64 markers, including 3 Y-chromosome markers that allow for unique identification of individuals, though it may not be sensitive enough to distinguish siblings from each other.  Markers were selected to have high Minor Allele Frequency (MAF) in multiple ethnic groups, so this chip cannot be used for distinguishing between populations.  It is useful as an internal control for GWAS studies and next-gen sequencing projects.  Each chip runs 48 samples.


  • 1 chip: $1,4752
  • 2 chips: $2,2653
  • 3 chips: $2,9654
  • 4 chips: $3,585
  • Discounts available for larger projects.  Please inquire.

    Fingerprinting or Human Linkage by Illumina QC Array

    The Illumina QC array contains 15,949 markers which are useful for biobanking, fingerprinting, ethnic ancestry determination and QC.  The array contains all of the SNPs which were on the former human linkage array, so it can also be used for linkage studies.  It also includes ADME content.

    Specialized Consortium Arrays

    We are happy to work with you to genotype the consortium or commercial version of any of Illumina’s specialized arrays.  These offerings are constantly changing and pricing and rules for access vary by array.  Please contact us if you are interested in running any of the current offerings, which include (but are not limited to): the Onco-Array, the Psych Array, Immunochip2 and the NeuroX Array.


    Please contact us for pricing.  Please include the name of the array of interest and approximate sample numbers in your email, as pricing is dependent on the number of samples.  Minimum sample number is at least 92, but some arrays may have higher minimums.
