By Disease / Model ATCC offers a wide assortment of cell cultures and microbial strains to support disease-based research in several key areas, such as cancer research and infectious disease. Cancer ATCC cultures are critical to the discovery and development of new, improved, and emerging scientific advances in the field of cancer research. Rare Disease - Human Chordoma ATCC has these cell lines available to the drug discovery community as in vitro tools to study and develop effective treatments for chordoma. Genetic Disease Research ATCC provides a wide array of cell lines from genetic diseases, such as Down's Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Cri du Chat Syndrome, and Marfan's Syndrome. Infectious Disease Research Browse a wide array of cells and microorganisms used in infectious disease research, including emerging, respiratory, and blood borne diseases. Metabolic Diseases Browse our collection of cell lines isolated from tissues such as the liver, pancreas, adipocytes, preadipocytes, kidney and pituitary. Tumor/Normal Matched Cell Line Pairs Tumor-derived cell lines matched to either normal or metastatic cell lines obtained from the same patient provide a valuable resource for cancer studies. The availability of such models allows researchers to compare tumor lines to their normal counterparts. Respiratory Diseases ATCC offers a wide array of cell lines isolated from normal and diseased respiratory tissues, such as the trachea and lung.
