Nationwide Children's Nucleic Acid
Nucleic Acid Extraction Core supports clinical trials
The Nucleic Acid Extraction Core at Nationwide Children's Hospital supports clinical trials that require high quality nucleic acids. A variety of methods are available for nucleic acid extraction from blood, tissue, or buccal swabs.
Quality control to test the integrity of the DNA or RNA is performed at the investigator’s request. Each trial or project is managed separately after discussion with the investigator regarding optimal collection methods and desired downstream applications.
