DNA Fingerprinting Lab

Genetic Fingerprinting (also called DNA testing, DNA typing, or DNA profiling) is a technique used to distinguish between individuals of the same species using only samples of their DNA.

Our staff works hard to make the DNA Identity Testing Center your choice of provider for all DNA testing services. We ensure superior quality, service and convenience to our clients. In our commitment to providing convenience, please know that we provide a free DNASwabTM Home DNA Collection Kit for use in all types of private DNA tests.

AmpFLP
Another technique, AmpFLP, or amplified fragment length polymorphism was also put into practice during the early 1990s. This technique was also faster than RFLP analysis and used PCR to amplify DNA samples. It relied on variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphisms to distinguish various alleles, which were separated on a polyacrylamide gel using an allelic ladder (as opposed to a molecular weight ladder). Bands could be visualized by silver staining the gel. One popular locus for fingerprinting was the D1S80 locus. As with all PCR based methods, highly degraded DNA or very small amounts of DNA may cause allelic dropout (causing a mistake in thinking a heterozygote is a homozygote) or other stochastic effects.
Plasmid DNA Preparation
Plasmid DNA Preparation
It is best if medical or dishwashing gloves are worn when preparing supplies for the laboratory to prevent the teacher's fingers from contaminating the DNA samples. The DNA will not harm the teacher, but the teacher can harm the DNA. The DNA samples are prepared from plasmid DNA provided at the appropriate concentration. The DNA should be kept refrigerated, except when it is being used to prepare and conduct the laboratory.
Migration Dye Preparation
Migration Dye Preparation
A blue migration dye is used to monitor the movement of the DNA during electrophoresis. The migration dye is provided by the Office of Biotechnology ready for use. Each group of students should receive the dye, even if they are given placebos of water, instead of DNA, restriction endonuclease, and reaction buffer.
