Transfection Reagents

A better style of protein expression!

10/24/2013

Transfections got you down? It’s true - some cells are harder to transfect than others, but ATCC is here to help. This webinar will describe how transfection reagents and culturing practices can affect the success of your experiments. In addition, we will demonstrate how our new transfection reagent, TransfeX, can help you transfect even the most notoriously difficult cells (i.e. stem cells, primary cells) and help you get your experiments going.

Mycoplasma Detection

Protect your continuous cell cultures

10/10/2013

Are you sure your continuous cell cultures and media are free from contamination? Mycoplasma contamination affects roughly 15-35% of continuous cell cultures, resulting in deleterious effects including the induction of chromosomal abnormalities, the disruption of DNA and RNA synthesis, and the inhibition of both cell metabolism and growth rate. In this presentation, learn how to protect your cultures using the ATCC® Mycoplasma Detection Kit.

Primary Cell Solutions

Biologically relevant in vitro models

9/26/2013

Did you know, ATCC, your trusted source for tumor cell lines, also offers primary cells? In this webinar, we will describe how our broad offering of primary cells, optimized media systems and transfection reagents, can help you get your primary cell cultures up and running, so you can get your experiments going, and your research moving forward.

ATCC Toolbox

Kick-start your semester!

9/12/2013

The academic year has begun, but are you ready for it? Let ATCC help you set up your lab! In this presentation, we will discuss some of our products designed with teaching laboratories in mind. We will also provide helpful information and key features about our Culture Guides and the new Introduction to Microbiology Guide. Get your students on the fast track to success!

Fungal Disease

A 21st Century Challenge to Bat Conservation

6/13/2013

Since first discovered in 2007 near Albany, New York, bat white-nose syndrome has spread to 20 US states and five Canadian provinces, and the disease is estimated to have killed over five million insectivorous hibernating bats. An outbreak of infectious disease among bats on the order of white-nose syndrome is without precedent. This presentation will provide an overview of this novel emergent wildlife disease and explore the profound impacts it may have on bat conservation in the 21st century.

ATCC is your trusted source for induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology! This webinar will provide background on human iPSC and ATCC products and introduce the advantages of our new human iPSC products. Finally, we will demonstrate helpful tips and solutions for using the ATCC feeder-free human iPSC culture system for the thawing, passaging and cryopreservation.

For over 85 years, ATCC has been helping scientists store and distribute their prokaryotic strains. In that time we have developed considerable expertise in maintaining the strains deposited with us, but it is up to the depositor to name their species and ensure that the name is recognized by the research community. In this talk, we will go over the deposit and name validation process, providing tips and pointing out potential bumps in the road. You’ll also get a list of essential publications and useful web sites to help you make sure your new species is successfully introduced to the world.

Earlier this year, ATCC revised its Material Transfer Agreement, to enable researchers and external research sites to transfer key biological reagents derived from ATCC material, such as transfected cell lines and genomic DNA, to collaborators without seeking permission from ATCC or paying administrative transfer fees. Additionally, the ATCC Deposit Agreement has been updated to allow those depositing with ATCC to share in the financial success of a deposit by receiving a royalty stream, once a certain sales threshold has been reached. In this webinar, we will provide more details about these updated agreements, and address how these changes affect the research community.

Protists are eukaryotic microorganisms commonly studied due to their ecological relevance in aquatic food chains and their impact on human health. Protistology research and comparative studies are dependent on the accessibility of authenticated biological standards. To meet this need, the Protistology Collection at the ATCC houses the largest and most diverse repository of protist cultures in the world. The primary role of the collection has been the acquisition, authentication, preservation, and distribution of reference strains. Characterization of deposited cultures includes a variety of tests such as viability, purity, phenotypic properties, and genotypic analysis. Additionally, over the last decade, resources within the collection have expanded to include genomic DNA and custom services. This presentation will provide an overview of biological resources available in the ATCC Protistology Collection, a discussion on the methods of characterization, benefits of depositing, current research projects, and future perspectives.

Human cancer cell lines have been used as essential tools in both high-throughput drug screening and detailed molecular mechanism studies. This Webinar will focus on genetic characterization of human cancer cell lines currently used in laboratories. Additionally, it will introduce how to choose the best cell lines and cell line panels for biological understanding of top genetic alterations across tumor types, and for testing small molecules or biologics for cancer drug development.
