Human Cells

Blue and purple 3d cells.

ATCC human cells are invaluable for your public health research

Human cell lines are a critical biological resource. These in vitro models of human biology are used in biomedical research, toxicology studies, bioindustry, drug discovery, vaccine development, protein production, and a host of other applications. To fulfill this enormous need, ATCC offers the largest collection of cells in the world, with examples of diseased and normal cells from every tissue type found in the human body.

Additionally, the scientific community relies on standardized cell culture quality to feel confident in their research results. ATCC addresses this need by providing rigorous quality control in its manufacturing processes followed by thorough and validated cell authentication methods to confirm the identity of all human cells.

Discover why ATCC credible cell cultures are critical to the discovery, invention, and development of incredible scientific advances.
