SCTB: Canine Large Animal

Overview of Services

The Canine Large Animal resource provides VNTR (variable number tandem repeat), and LAM-PCR (linear amplification mediated PCR) and other molecular technology to analyze genotypes. Services were established initially to assist hematological research, but the facility also offers the following services to scientists in other areas of research. We also provide products, protocols, and services for cell and molecular analyses in the Canis lupus familiaris model.
