ATCC genome portal provides access to reference-quality genomes, enabling increased confidence in research
Combined capabilities provide scientists with access to new and existing immortalized cell lines for use in broad research applications and clinical markets.
Material deposit agreements established with over 30 institutions will accelerate biological material distribution to global research community.
BioCision, a leader in sample handling, announced today a new collaboration with ATCC, the world’s leading provider of authenticated biological material. ATCC debuted the first product in this collaboration, the alcohol-free CoolCell® LX cell cryopreservation container, at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) 2013 meeting in April. BioCision and ATCC are exploring additional custom-design ATCC branded products from the BioCision’s CoolProducts™ platform, which may be used and distributed by ATCC.
Choosing an in vitro model system that faithfully represents the natural physiology of the cell being studied is fundamental to understanding its in vivo function. Cultures of primary cell isolates retain their physiology and karyotype after isolation, but cultures may be difficult to prepare and are susceptible to contamination.
