Get ready-to-use nucleic acids and focus on your research

When you start with the right controls, you can get your research done faster and get reliable and reproducible results. We provide ready-to-use nucleic acids from clinically relevant cell lines, allowing you to focus on your research and assay development efforts. 

The extraction, preparation, and verification of nucleic acids can often require extensive amounts of time, labor, and expense. ATCC has developed stabilized nucleic acid preparations for use in inclusivity/exclusivity testing, establishing limits of detection, and validating or comparing test methods, and diagnostic assay development. 

We also offer custom nucleic acids services if you are not able to find the materials you need in our catalog. ATCC can grow, extract, and purify nucleic acids from most ATCC cultures in larger quantities. Alternatively, you can send us your cell line of interest, and we can provide custom extraction according to your design specifications.

So, partner with the cell biology experts and let us do the work for you! You can trust ATCC Genuine Nucleic Acids for your laboratory’s molecular needs to expedite your research efforts.

Challenges and Solutions in the Development and Validation of Molecular-Based Assays

Molecular-based assays are beneficial, but great care must be taken to ensure that assays are properly validated to guarantee performance and uncompromised data. In this white paper, we discuss the challenges of evaluating the analytical performance of a molecular-based assay as well as guidance on selecting the ideal reference materials.
