UCLA Biological Samples Processing Core (BSPC)

The Biological Samples Processing Core (BSPC) offers DNA extractions from whole blood and other tissue types utilizing the Autopure LS nucleic acid purification instrument from Gentra Systems. Extracted DNA can be returned immediately or stored indefinitely at the BSPC in a -20°C freezer, for future use. The core also aliquots DNA at desired concentrations. All samples are logged in the BSPC database and are bar-coded with their sample number and customer's identification code.
