Help your microbes divide and conquer

You can’t see them, but microbes are everywhere! Viruses, fungi, yeasts, protozoa, algae, bacteria, and archaea are truly the proverbial “big things come in small packages”—without these essential organisms, life as we know it wouldn’t exist.

As researchers, not only do we know how valuable microorganisms are with regard to human health and disease, but for finding solutions to numerous problems. That’s why ATCC scientists have collected, authenticated, and preserved organisms for nearly a century to ensure that researchers have access to the strains needed to develop vaccines, clean up oil spills, ensure healthier food and water, find treatments for infectious diseases, and develop products to keep our homes clean.

Vaccine Development Tools

The continual spread of deadly pathogens along with the dwindling supply of antimicrobial treatments necessitates the development of effective prevention methods. The development of novel vaccines is held back by the incredible variability between microbial strains and the limitations in the vaccine manufacturing process. That’s why we are committed to providing researchers with the virus-producing cell lines, pathogenic microbial strains, and purified pneumococcal polysaccharides needed to support vaccine research and development.
