Microbiome Research Solutions

Microbiome research is limited by the lack of available reference materials. ATCC has the solution: microbiome standards. Throughout each stage of your microbiome workflow, microbiome standards enable you to optimize your research applications with confidence and improve the consistency and reproducibility of your data run after run.

Purified Viruses

Obtaining a high-titer, purified virus preparation can be time consuming and tedious. Don’t let viral purification limit your scientific progress—start your research with authenticated, high-titer, purified viruses from ATCC. From assay development to screening studies, these high-quality materials are essential tools for your innovative research.

Multidrug-Resistant Strains

Antimicrobial resistance affects us all, which is why it is more important than ever to discover the innovative treatment options needed to stop the spread of this global health threat. That’s why ATCC is committed to providing researchers with the extensively characterized priority pathogens needed for drug discovery. Together, we can stop the spread of superbugs.
