Scientists can confirm the identify of mouse cell lines to ensure the integrity of their research thanks to a partnership between ATCC and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). ATCC and NIST worked together along with scientists from 10 independent laboratories in the Mouse Cell Line Authentication Consortium to validate the ATCC mouse STR profiling service. The service uses the unique short tandem repeat (STR) markers identified by NIST and tested by the consortium for different mouse cell lines to validate the authenticity of any mouse cell line.

Blue floating rods, including one section cut out to show a red double helix inside. QIAGEN partnership

ATCC and QIAGEN have formed a partnership to provide the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries with reference-quality transcriptomes tied back to well-characterized, authenticated human and animal cell lines from ATCC. Through this collaboration, one thousand whole-transcriptome (RNAseq) datasets will be created each year for ATCC gold-standard cell lines and provided through the ATCC Cell Line Land database. This partnership enables the use of authenticated biological data sets to uncover new disease pathways and discover novel therapeutic targets.
