ATCC Microbiology – Best Practices for Stock Maintenance

ATCC Microbiology – Best Practices for Stock Maintenance

Authenticated reference materials are essential for assay reproducibility and data integrity. To ensure the quality of these cultures, it is imperative that they are well-characterized and carefully managed through preservation and storage protocols that maintain the genotype and phenotype. In this webinar, we will discuss the best practices for stock maintenance with regard to passage, storage, recovery, and microbial authentication, and how ATCC manages these through the seed stock concept, adhering to the specific needs of each culture, and polyphasic strain authentication.
