ATCC® Genuine Nucleics

The extraction, preparation, and verification of nucleic acids can often require extensive amounts of time, labor, and expense. Save time and money with ready-to-use nucleic acids isolated from ATCC Genuine Cultures® and cell lines. Or, choose synthetic nucleic acids designed and developed for difficult-to-culture or unculturable microorganisms.


Skip in vitro with ATCC® Genuine Nucleics

ATCC® Genuine Nucleics represents the largest and most diverse array of native, synthetic, and certified reference materials for use in molecular-based assays, quality control, and assay development.


Each ATCC preparation of high-quality DNA and RNA is isolated or synthetically derived under aseptic conditions to prevent cross-contamination. What’s more, you can trust that the Genuine Nucleics you obtain from ATCC have been fully authenticated and characterized by one or more of the following analyses:

  • Agarose gel electrophoresis to ensure integrity
  • Spectrophotometry to evaluate purity
  • PicoGreen®, RiboGreen®, or Droplet Digital™ PCR to calculate concentration
  • PCR to confirm functional activity
  • Sequence analysis of conserved genomic regions to confirm species identity

Let ATCC help you get your research moving faster with ATCC® Genuine Nucleics!

Native Nucleic Acids

Native nucleic acids are aseptically prepared from minimally-passaged ATCC Genuine Cultures® and cell lines that have been phenotypically and genotypically authenticated to confirm species identity and functional activity. These whole genome preparations save you the time and cost associated with culturing and extracting nucleic acids yourself.

Certified Reference Material (CRM)

Genuine Nucleic CRMs are quantified biological reference materials produced under an ISO Guide 34 accredited process to confirm identity, well-defined characteristics, and an established chain of custody. These tools are ideal for use in inclusivity/exclusivity testing, establishing limits of detection, and validating or comparing test methods.
