Cell Line Authentication: Protect Your Research and Reputation WebinarAugust 25, 2022, at 12:00 PM ET
The lack of reproducibility in life science research is a far-reaching crisis; cell line misidentification and contamination profoundly impacts biomedical studies and can result in publication retraction, credibility loss, data invalidation, and financial cost. In this webinar, you will learn how you can help restore reproducibility in research by using ATCC’s portfolio of authentication services and products, including human and mouse STR profiling, mycoplasma detection, and cytochrome 1 oxidase barcoding for species identification. After the presentation, join us for a lively discussion as ATCC cell line authentication experts answer your questions.
- Irreproducible research can result in publication retraction, credibility loss, data invalidation, and financial cost.
- ATCC provides several services and products, such as human and mouse STR profiling, mycoplasma detection, and cytochrome 1 oxidase barcoding, for cell line authentication.
- Including a rigorous program of cell authentication as part of your research plan can help ensure the validity of your experimental results.

Cell authentication tests
ATCC authenticates human cells through its easy-to-use human cell short tandem repeat (STR) profiling service. Once you receive your FTA Sample Collection Kit, spot your cells onto Whatman FTA cards, let them dry, and mail them to ATCC.More
Developed by ATCC in partnership with the National Institutes for Standards and Technology (NIST) and tested by 10 independent laboratories, ATCC’s Mouse STR profiling service offers a new global standard for mouse cell line authentication.More
