ATCC and QIAGEN Agreement Enables Faster and Reliable Research Results

Providing reference-quality multi ‘omics datasets tied back to authenticated, well-characterized cell lines

Reproducible research starts with credible data

By combining QIAGEN's best-in-class bioinformatics solutions with ATCC's fully authenticated and characterized cell lines, researchers are offered unparalleled access to the accurate datasets and credible materials needed to streamline the discovery of gene signatures, biomarkers, and therapeutic targets. Through this alliance, 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.

Cell lines have revolutionized research by replacing primary cells from living tissue, but they do not always replicate accurately. If cell lines are not authenticated by a trusted source like ATCC, they could be contaminated and misidentified. This means researchers usually have to spend weeks or even months sequencing and characterizing cell lines before they can use them for preclinical research. ATCC Cell Line Land provides not only sequencing data on the cell lines, but also detailed information about actual lots of cell lines stored in ATCC’s biorepository, guaranteeing each sample’s intact provenance and its quality as ready-to-use. As a result, researchers can quickly identify and access credible, authenticated and characterized cell lines, enabling faster and more reliable biopharma preclinical research results.

Protect your research

Advancements in science depend on the ability to reproduce published data; it provides the foundation for establishing new areas of research and translating insightful findings into life-saving therapies and effective diagnostic tools. Without the ability to confidently compare and correlate data between different bodies of work, research cannot be expanded upon and scientific progress stalls. This could result in lost publications or wasted time, effort, and money. Your research is important, and there are people throughout the world that depend on the validity of your results.
