Your research depends on reliable biomaterials that you can trust. That means ensuring that the quality and authenticity of your material remains consistent throughout each stage of your project. As part of our commitment to promoting reproducibility in the life sciences, ATCC provides researchers with cGMP-compliant biorepository services that enable the secure and reliable storage and management of your precious biological materials.
With nearly a century of experience in biomaterials services and management, we have the expertise needed to authenticate, store, maintain, and globally distribute biological samples. By entrusting us with your samples, you can rest assured that your materials are securely managed through a temperature-controlled supply chain, 24/7 equipment monitoring, and on-call after-hours personnel. We’ll take care of the logistics and resources, so you can focus on what’s important—your research.
3 things to consider about biomaterials storage services
- Best use of your limited resources: Your budget for drug development is limited. Would you rather spend your budget on securing your cells or on infrastructure and people to develop more drugs?
- Permitting and logistics: Clinical trials are often performed in another country. Would you rather ship the materials yourself or outsource the process to a trusted partner?
- Cell authentication: Your materials may have been stored for a long period, transported often, and used in multiple experiments. Would you rather risk research results on potentially contaminated cells or rely on ATCC to authenticate your cells so you can be confident in your materials and research results.
