Let Promega STR technologies and the experts at ATCC bring you confidence in the integrity of your cell lines.
With the publication of the ANSI Standard (ASN-0002) Authentication of Human Cell Lines: Standardization of STR Profiling by the ATCC Standards Development Organization on the authentication of human cell lines, the NIH and many journals now recommend or require cell line authentication by short tandem repeat (STR) analysis before grant approval and/or acceptance for publication.
Promega and ATCC will offer a human cell line authentication service that takes care of all the details for you.
Why Cell Line Authentication Matters
