Permits and Restrictions

View Permits

Verified By Whole-genome Sequencing
Classification Enterobacteriaceae, Escherichia
Strain Designations Quantitative Genomic DNA from Escherichia coli
Application ATCC® Genuine Nucleics can be used for assay development, verification, validation, monitoring of day-to-day test variation and lot-to-lot performance of molecular-based assays. The quantitative format allows for the generation of a standard curve for quantitative PCR (qPCR) to determine bacterial load and for other molecular biology applications.
Biosafety Level 1

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.
