Custom Primary Cell Services

Blue and green high resolution fibroblast cells.

We produce custom primary cells from healthy and diseased tissue

ATCC produces custom primary cells allowing you to study tissue specific characteristics on a cellular level in vitro and to develop more biologically relevant models. Healthy cells, as well as cells derived from diseased tissues such as asthma, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, diabetes, and many other pathologies can be produced.

For each cell type, careful consideration is given to maintain broad donor diversity, robust quality control, lot-to-lot consistency, and large-scale production capacity. Laboratories that may have started to isolate primary cell culture in-house face challenges with lots not being standardized therefore, may be unable to perform inter-laboratory studies and comparisons due to variability among the reagents and procedures used to derive primary cells. ATCC’s project management team will partner with you to develop custom protocols by understanding your needs, from starting tissue requirements, production, scalability, automated vialing, to storage and distribution.

What we offer you: 

  • Custom primary cells can be produced in large lots, making them ideal for scale-up as ready-to-use cells or ready-to-store for longer term studies
  • By removing time dependencies with tissue procurement and isolations, we offer our customers flexibility
  • All tissues utilized for human primary cell derivation are ethically obtained with documented, legal permission for research use; upon request, detailed donor information can be provided both for normal and diseased cells
  • Characterization with full quality control testing that can include phenotyping by immunocytochemistry (ICC) or flow cytometry
  • Cell isolates undergo intensive characterization with relevant positive and negative markers to deliver consistent quality and purity
  • Robust sourcing of the tissue network ensures access to a diverse range of ethnicities and disease states
  • Offering reagents matched and optimized to work with each primary cell type
  • Manufactured in a cGTP facility compliant with regulatory guidelines

Assay-ready cells

Assay-ready cells give you the flexibility to perform your experiments when you’re ready, without the time and manpower commitments of cell cultivation, maintenance, or counting. ATCC offers expert capabilities for the preparation and characterization of assay-ready cells, either from authenticated ATCC cell lines or your own proprietary cell lines.

Cell Bank Production

We have been the authority on cell and microbial banking for nearly 100 years. Our laboratory and storage facilities are first-in-class for the large-capacity storage of cell lines, microorganisms, and other biological materials. We can support any cell banking need and will work with you at all stages of the cell bank development process from the initiation of your project to the large-scale production of your cells and microbes.

Custom Cell Authentication Services

ATCC offers custom testing services to authenticate your cell lines. These can be ordered separately or as a package of tests to ensure a cell line’s identity is verified and shown to be free of contamination from other cell lines and microbes.
