Clinical Isolates Collection
The ATCC® Clinical Isolates Collection comprises a targeted set of recent, antimicrobial-resistant clinical isolates that support drug discovery and assay development. Each strain in the collection has validated genotypic and phenotypic activity against a variety of critical drug classes, and is provided with susceptibility data, genetic data, and source information.
ATCC offers a wide array of clinically relevant AMR strains isolated from a variety of hospital- and community-acquired sources. These cultures are useful for studying the genetic variations between strain types, the in vitro evaluation of disinfectants and novel antimicrobials, and establishing the performance characteristics of molecular-based assays.
