Infectious Disease Research

Browse a wide array of cells and microorganisms used in infectious disease research, including emerging, respiratory, and blood borne diseases.
Kidney

Metabolic Diseases

Browse our collection of cell lines isolated from tissues such as the liver, pancreas, adipocytes, preadipocytes, kidney and pituitary.

Tumor/Normal Matched Cell Line Pairs

Tumor-derived cell lines matched to either normal or metastatic cell lines obtained from the same patient provide a valuable resource for cancer studies. The availability of such models allows researchers to compare tumor lines to their normal counterparts.
Lung cancer cells

Respiratory Diseases

ATCC offers a wide array of cell lines isolated from normal and diseased respiratory tissues, such as the trachea and lung.
