ATCC

The partners are offering ATCC's nucleic acid and whole-cell standards in combination with One Codex's bioinformatics platform.

The technique provides the scientific community with a higher-resolution methodology to determine if a mouse cell line has been correctly identified in research.

Short tandem repeat and expression data indicate that the U87MG cell line in the ATCC collection no longer represents the glioma from which it was established.

The firm has already developed a new cell line with EML4-ALK fusion mutations for use in drug and molecular diagnostics development.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – ATCC and BioMérieux today said they are collaborating to expand the BioMérieux Vitek MS microbial identification database for the industrial market.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — ATCC has partnered with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Thermo Fisher Scientific's Life Technologies, among other organizations, to manufacture and distribute a rapid, cost-effective genotyping kit to monitor HIV-1 drug resistance in resource-limited c

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — ATCC has partnered with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Thermo Fisher Scientific to bring a rapid, cost-effective PCR-based method of monitoring HIV drug resistance to resource-limited countries, ATCC said today.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Biomatrica and ATCC today said they have completed a licensing agreement to supply reagents for stabilizing DNA and RNA standards.

In 2005, scientists from two Spanish research institutions published a paper in Cancer Research reporting the spontaneous transformation of human adult stem cells to cancer stem cells — the first time, they asserted, that such a phenomenon had been reported.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Horizon Discover today said it has signed a licensing and distribution deal with the American Type Culture Collection for certain sets of panels of X-Man isogenic cell lines.
