Abstract:

Many scientific organizations within industry, government, and academia prefer to outsource key tasks such as the characterization, derivatization, and storage of biomaterials so they can focus on research and development. Since 1925, ATCC has set the standard for the authentication, generation and production, biostorage, and distribution of vital biological materials. The ATCC team supports all stages of the custom project process, from the initial inquiry, design, and initiation of the project, to the production, characterization, packaging, storage, and distribution of the biological material. This webinar will showcase how our laboratories and biorepository are able to provide customized solutions underpinned by nearly a century of industry experience, making ATCC the preferred strategic partner for organizations that choose to outsource these critical processes.

Key points:

  • Learn the importance of cell authentication to support reliable and relevant research.
  • Learn how ATCC scientists can use their expertise to engineer the cell modifications you need to advance your research.
  • Learn how ATCC can produce, scale-up, store, and distribute your biomaterials under cGMP compliant conditions.
