Site-specific Standards

While there is a wealth of knowledge on the human microbiome, much of it still remains an enigma. ATCC is committed to supporting this incredible field of research by creating the cutting-edge standards needed for studying the oral, skin, gut, and vaginal microbiomes. These standard can be used as controls in microbial profiling of mixed populations or for examining the effects of dysbiosis on human health.

Spike-in Standards

Standardization throughout your microbiome research workflow is essential for producing reproducible data. That’s why ATCC has developed spike-in standards comprising genetically engineered bacterial strains that each contain a unique synthetic DNA tag. These standards can be used as a true run control from sample storage all the way through data analysis.

Mycobiome Standards

Although there is an abundance of studies on the human bacterial microbiome, there are a limited number of reagents and publications focused specifically on the mycobiome. In support of this burgeoning field of research, ATCC has created a mycobiome standard comprising genetically diverse and clinically relevant fungi. Optimize your mycobiome studies today with credible standards.
