Detecting and treating STIs can be challenging

ATCC can help! Our cultures and nucleic acids provide you with the reliability of fully authenticated reference materials for the development of novel therapeutics, vaccines, and rapid detection methods.

  • Minimally passaged strains
  • Cellular products containing viral nucleic acids sequences
  • Genomic and synthetic nucleic acids

The use of high-quality ATCC reference materials in assay development allows for fast, accurate, and reproducible verification of assay performance, such as inclusivity/exclusivity testing and limits of detection. Get started with our research solutions provided below, or:

ATCC® Genuine Nucleics

ATCC® Genuine Nucleics are high-quality DNA and RNA preparations that were isolated or synthetically derived under aseptic conditions to prevent cross-contamination. Each preparation has been fully authenticated and characterized to confirm integrity, purity, concentration, functionality, and identity. ATCC® Genuine Nucleics save you the time and cost associated with culturing and extracting the nucleic acids yourself, allowing you to get your STI research started faster.
