Processing of Biospecimens in a Controlled Environment

5/25/2017


Time: 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Abstract:

Biological materials produced through scientific inquiry are often valuable assets that support important scientific breakthroughs. To ensure the safety and future availability of these resources, they should be stored within a biorepository to protect against loss, contamination, or genetic drift. In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of biological materials management and will expand on the services offered at ATCC that support the handling and storage of biological specimens

Key Points:

  • Biobanking of cell lines, microbial strains, and other biological reagents generated through scientific investigation with a biorepository ensures they will be accessible to support future scientific endeavors
  • ATCC Biorepository Services℠ delivers secure and reliable biological material management with temperature-controlled supply chain, 24/7 equipment monitoring, and on-call after-hours personnel
  • ATCC provides extensive support to customers needing cGMP compliant and non-cGMP master cell banks and working cell banks, including short- and long-term storage of small- or large-scale specimens
