Infectious Diseases - Inclusivity/Exclusivity
Ensuring assay sensitivity and specificity requires a wide breadth of both inclusive and exclusive standards. As the largest and most diverse biological resource center in the world, ATCC has the strains and nucleic acids you need for assay development.
Establishing ideal inclusivity/exclusivity parameters is an essential part of assay validation, particularly for the development of diagnostic and epidemiological assays whose results can affect public health. For this reason, ATCC has expanded its portfolio to include a diverse collection of cultures grouped by:
- Toxin production
- Clinical relevance
These strains have been extensively characterized and authenticated using a polyphasic approach that includes genotypic, phenotypic, and functional analyses. This provides highly accurate identification across a wide array of microorganisms, ensuring that you choose the best products for your inclusivity/exclusivity validation studies.
