cell line authentification
The New York City-based startup is offering a 20-year-old technology to build new cell lines to the wider scientific community for the first time.
The developers say the Find Cell software tool allows researchers to improve their lab workflows and monitor cell lines for changes.
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Variability Tallied Across Genomes
Researchers profiled the genotypes and phenotypes for more than 700 induced pluripotent stem cell lines, uncovering between-individual sources of variation.
Genetic Analysis Reveals Misidentified Glioma Cell Line
Short tandem repeat and expression data indicate that the U87MG cell line in the ATCC collection no longer represents the glioma from which it was established.
Considering the widespread use of the cell line, these findings could have significant implications for the research community.
