Toxicology

ATCC offers well-characterized cells that can be used to refine traditional cell-based experiments or construct high-throughput assays, reducing the need for in vivo studies.


Physiologically-relevant cell-based assays are critical for the biomedical and toxicity data that cannot be obtained from animal models or humans. ATCC provides the cells needed to explore lung, skin, cardiovascular, gastro-enteric, liver, kidney, and neural toxicity for such applications as high-content screening, 3D culture, spheroid culture, permeability assays, metabolic stability and survival, and more.

      Renal Uptake Screening Tools

      RPTEC/TERT-OAT1 Cells
      RPTEC/TERT-OCT2 Cells
      OAT1 HEK 293T/17 Cells

      ATCC offers OAT1 and OCT2 cells, which stably express soluble transporter proteins that play key roles in the kidney’s clearance of drugs and endogenous compounds. These cell lines are a superior model for nephrotoxicity screening and renal physiology.

      Kidney Cells

      Browse Kidney Cell Lines

      ATCC’s holdings include a vast collection of cell lines derived from kidney, representing the normal and diseased tissue of multiple species. Many of these cells can be used to build reliable models for the study of urolithiasis, renal function, glomerulonephritis, and kidney cancer.

      Physiologically Relevant Controls

      Primary Kidney Cells
      hTERT-immortalized Cells

      All experiments should include physiologically relevant controls. ATCC offers both primary and hTERT-immortalized renal epithelial cells. We offer cells from the renal proximal convoluted tubule, the renal cortex, mixed epithelial cells. Theses cells are well-suited for the study of normal renal physiology, toxicological screens, and can be used in drug discovery applications.
