Zika virus is a vector-borne pathogen that is spread among humans primarily through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes. With outbreaks occurring throughout regions in Central and South America, preventing the spread of this disease has become a top priority. ATCC strains and nucleic acid preparations serve as critical controls in research and validation, and are authenticated and backed by polyphasic testing—ensuring the consistency and reliability you have come to trust from ATCC.

Neural Progenitor Cells

ATCC offers a complete system of tri-lineage–capable, neural progenitor cells (NPCs), lineage marker–labeled NPCs, and expansion and differentiation media. Work with differentiating or terminally differentiated neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes much sooner—yield experimental results faster.

Vector-borne Diseases

The WHO estimates that vector-borne diseases contribute to 17% of the estimated global burden of infectious diseases. The development of rapid diagnostic tools and innovative vaccines is essential for improving patient outcomes and preventing the further emergence and spread of disease. Get started on your vector-borne research with microorganisms and nucleic acids from ATCC!
