Cell Biology

The ATCC Cell Biology Collection is the largest and most diverse collection of its kind. Browse our selection of continuous, hTERT-immortalized, primary and iPS cell lines as well as our selection of culture media and associated reagents. We have everything you need to keep your cultures healthy and your research moving forward.

Cancer cellsTumor Cell Panels
ATCC has created tumor cell panels and gene mutation lists based on the ATCC tumor cell line collection and known mutation information maintained in the Sanger Institute COSMIC database.


Aortic smooth purple primary cellsPrimary Cell Solutions 
The ATCC® Primary Cell Solutions™ collection includes low passage, ready-to-use human primary cells, such as  umbilical vein endothelial cells and renal proximal tubule epithelial cells, matched with their ideal media and supplements to create optimized, easy-to-use culture systems.

CellsCell Line Systems 
The ATCC cell line collection includes authenticated, reliable continuous cell lines and tumor cell panels to support cancer research and drug discovery.


isolated antibodies hTERT Immortalized Cell Lines
The ATCC Immortalized Cell Solutions collection encompasses a wide variety of cell types, such as retinal pigmented epithelial cells hepatocytes, and endometrial stromal cells, immortalized using human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) technology. These cells provide the investigator with a valuable in vitro model that combines the best properties of primary cells and continuous cell lines. In addition, ATCC offers the hTERT-immortalization vectors necessary for generating hTERT-immortalized cells in the lab.

chondro 3 alginateStem Cell Solutions
The ATCC® Complete Stem Cell Solutions™ collection includes an extensive array of induced pluripotent stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, and mouse embryonic stem cells. In addition, ATCC has easy-to-use serum-dependent or serum-free culture systems, feeder cells (both mouse and human), and Basement Membrane Gel all optimized to support the growth of stem cells in culture.


Kidney_normal Expression Systems
ATCC Expression Systems match reliable, authenticated cells with their ideal media and transfection reagents to create optimized, easy to use protein expression systems.

media_under_scopeClassical Cell Culture
ATCC has the media you need to keep your cells happy, healthy, and behaving as expected. All ATCC media are filtered, ready to use, and shipped in 500 mL plastic bottles.


DNA strandsGenomic DNA and RNA
Purified, genomic DNA from tumor and normal human cell lines ideally suited for the molecular comparisons of these tissues, genomic library construction, southern hybridization and PCR.

media2Cell Proliferation Assay Kits 
are convenient and valuable tools for the quantitative evaluation of a cell population's response to external factors that affect cell viability and growth.


Mycoplasma KitMycoplasma Detection Kit
offers a quick and sensitive PCR-based test to detect mycoplasma contaminants in cell culture. All components required for the PCR reaction are provided and have been optimized for amplification.
