  • SRM Genomic DNA Standards for HER2 Measurements (ATCC® NIST-2373)

    ATCC® Number: NIST-2373

    Quantity: 100 µL of DNA solution per vial
    Applications: Used to assign ratios of the human epidermal growth factor 2 gene (HER2; the official gene symbol ERBB2) to unamplified reference genes. Measurements of the amplification (increased copies) of the HER2 gene in breast cancer samples are used as a biomarker for determining the classification for breast cancers

    Product Format: 100 µL of DNA solution per vial
    Comments: SRM NIST-2373 consists of genomic DNA extracted from five breast cancer cell lines with different amounts of amplification of the HER2 gene. The five purified genomic DNAs were solubilized in a buffer consisting of 10 mmol/L tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane and 0.1 mmol/L ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt (EDTA) pH 8.0 (TE–4). The five components are genomic DNA materials derived from human cell lines SK-BR-3, MDA-MB-231, MDA-MB-361, MDA-MB-453, and BT-474, labeled A, B, C, D, and E, respectively. A unit of SRM 2373 consists of five vials, one of each component, containing approximately 100 μL of DNA solution. Each of these vials is labeled and is sealed with a color-coded screw cap.

  • SRM PCR-Based DNA Profiling Standard (ATCC® NIST-2391c)

    ATCC® Number: NIST-2391c

    Storage: Store in the dark between 2°C to 8°C. DO NOT FREEZE.
    Applications: For use in the standardization of forensic and paternity quality assurance procedures for polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based genetic testing, for instructional law enforcement or non-clinical research purposes, and for quality assurance when assigning values to in-house control materials. It is not intended for any human or animal clinical diagnostic use.

    Comments: SRM NIST-2391c is composed of well-characterized human deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in two forms: genomic DNA (Components A through D) and DNA to be extracted from cells that have been spotted onto 903 paper (Component E) and FTA paper (Component F).
