ATCC develops national consensus standards for biomaterials and related processes. In 2007, ATCC became the first biological resource organization to become accredited by American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as a Standards Development Organization (SDO). ANSI accreditation ensures that procedures used by standards developers meet the requirements for openness, balance, consensus, and due process and that the voluntary consensus standards produced are compatible with the requirements of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
These ATCC standards are available from ANSI
- ATCC published the consensus standard, Standardization of In Vitro Assays to Determine Anthrax Toxin Activities (ANSI/ATCC ASN-0001)
- ATCC published the consensus standard, Authentication of Human Cell Lines: Standardization of Short Tandem Repeat (STR) Profiling (ANSI/ATCC ASN-0002)
- ATCC published the consensus standard, Species-Level Identification of Animal Cells through Mitochondrial Cytochrome C Oxidase Subunit 1 (CO1) DNA Barcodes (ANSI/ATCC ASN-0003)
We can help with confirming your cell identity and viability
ATCC offers scientists stand-alone and customized cell authentication services to confirm the identity and purity of their research cultures. Services include human and mouse cell STR profiling and sterility, CO1, and mycoplasma testing.More
Developed by ATCC in partnership with the National Institutes for Standards and Technology (NIST) and tested by 10 independent laboratories, ATCC’s Mouse STR profiling service offers a new global standard for mouse cell line authentication.More
