Cell Bank Characterization

ATCC provides a range of authentication testing services designed to ensure consistency and reliability of your research data.

Cell Bank Characterization Common Tests:
  • Viability (e.g., trypan blue dye exclusion)
  • Sterility (testing for the absence of bacteria and fungi)
  • Mycoplasma (PCR and direct and indirect culture assays)
  • Species ID testing (CO1 multiplexing and barcoding)
  • Cell ID testing (STR profiling)
  • Surface marker testing
  • Other molecular assays (e.g., qPCR, ddPCR™, qRT-PCR, 16S rRNA, NGS and target sequencing, etc.)

If your cell bank requires unique assays/methods, we can develop those methods for you.
