We Are For Science
We all have something that drives us. Something that pushes us to achieve our goals. It’s what keeps us up at night and gets us out of bed each morning. It’s what makes us reach for lab coats and plastic goggles, rather than tailored suits and leather briefcases. It’s what draws us to data sets instead of dollar signs. It’s why we stand for science. Evidence-based science.
Through the tireless efforts of scientific trailblazers like you, we now have access to higher-quality therapeutics, reliable diagnostic tests, safer food and water, and creative solutions for environmental issues. At ATCC, we are proud to be a part of this essential research and we will continue to empower the global scientific community with the trustworthy solutions needed to transform innovative ideas into incredible breakthroughs.
We’re here for you—and, above all, we’re here for science.

Microbial reference materials
ATCC is dedicated to providing microbial reference materials backed by cutting-edge authentication techniques. As the premier source for microbial reference materials for the scientific research community, we place the highest standards on producing quality materials you can depend on for reproducible results.Find microbial reference materials
Your research depends on protocols and tools you can trust. As part of our mission, ATCC is a leader in the creation and maintenance of biological and published laboratory standards that protect public interests and provide quality reference material, education, accreditation, and certification services to the industry.Discover quality standards
Advanced techniques in authentication allow you to test for contamination and track phenotypic or genotypic changes before they become a problem. Researchers look to ATCC for a wide range of authentication resources to safeguard reproducibility and meet requirements for funding, publication, and quality control.Authenticate your cells
As part of our commitment to advancing authentication, we developed a standardized genome sequencing, assembly, and annotation pipeline to enrich the characterization of the biological materials in our collection. Our reference-quality genomes and metadata are available on the ATCC Genome Portal.Learn more about our approach
