Sampling

The Natural Resources DNA Profiling and Forensic Centre receives various types of samples for DNA analysis. Samples range from known individuals from zoos to unknown samples from the field.

We can process a wide range of sample types including muscle tissue, blood, hair, hide, scat, fish scales/fin clips, teeth, feathers and others. The NRDPFC has developed and optimized a number of DNA extraction protocols for these different tissue types. However, specific sample collection methods need to be followed for ideal DNA extraction results.
