ATCC determines the biosafety level of a material based on our risk assessment as guided by the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is your responsibility to understand the hazards associated with the material per your organization’s policies and procedures as well as any other applicable regulations as enforced by your local or national agencies.

Detailed product information


Specific applications

Analytical reference material developed by USP and ATCC for use as a control in PCR assays designed to detect residual host genomic (gDNA) impurities in biologics, drug substances, and process intermediates. 

Handling information

Handling procedure
Thaw samples at room temperature, at 4°C, or on ice. Keep the samples on ice or at 4°C until they are used. DNA samples will be stable at room temperature throughout the process of setting up a PCR experiment. If the process takes more than 2 hours, storage at 4°C or on ice is preferred, though degradation is unlikely to occur. When diluting large numbers of samples, work in small batches (12 or less at a time). Leave other samples frozen at -20°C or at 4°C if they will be diluted later in the same day.
Handling notes
Resuspend in 1x TE buffer (10 mM Tris-HCL, 1 mM EDTA, pH 8.0)
