ATCC cell lines are subjected to comprehensive and repeated authentication and contamination checks — starting with the depositor’s original material and continuing through the production of vials for distribution — ensuring that delivered materials meet the highest standards and expectations.
The general ATCC cell line accessioning scheme encompasses a series of tests which confirm the identity of a cell line and ensures that it is free of contamination.
A systematic seed-stock cell-banking method is used to produce virtually identical distribution lots, ensuring consistent materials for every order.
ATCC General Accessioning Process
The general ATCC accessioning process includes many tests that are repeated at every stage to provide cell line identity verification and unsurpassed quality-testing for all bioproduction runs.
