Genetic Fingerprinting: How Toxicology Labs Can Safeguard Screenings from Sample Manipulation

30 September 2021

Currently, specimen validity testing relies on certain observable characteristics and measurements like temperature, pH, and specific gravity. These methods do not, however, detect certain methods of manipulation such as specimen substitution, use of synthetics, or mishandling which can lead to inaccurate results.

The iPLEX® Pro Sample ID Panel from Agena Bioscience® utilizes genetic fingerprinting for certainty in results, enabling laboratories like yours to accurately detect substitution and match specimens to the right subjects. Labs can use a simple workflow to harness the power of genetics and achieve rapid, high-throughput, and cost-effective sample authentication.
