Genotyping Core Laboratory

Researchers using complex genetically modified animal models recognize that genotyping is tedious and time-consuming, with no room for error. NYU Langone’s Genotyping Core Laboratory provides fast, accurate, convenient, and affordable genotyping technologies. We use conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and gel electrophoresis methods. By pooling samples from a group of users, we can better ensure accuracy, cost-effectiveness, and quality control.

Our team of professional technicians and scientists has years of genotyping and troubleshooting experience, averaging 1,500 tails per month from an expanding library of more than 175 protocols.

To request a service, faculty, staff, and investigators must be registered in iLab. We have also provided instructions for accessing iLab for NYU Langone, NYU, NYU College of Dentistry, and external users.
