Human cell line authentication by STR profiling
The generated STR profile is compared to an appropriate reference sample. If available, DNA from the donor of the tested cell line is the best comparison. If donor DNA can no longer be accessed, the STR profile obtained for the sample is compared to all STR profiles available using an online database.
