Identity testing of human cell lines

Identification of human cell lines

Cell cultures have been used in research and development for decades. In recent years, however, it was shown that a number of popular cell lines no longer correspond to their documented identity. To exclude contamination with foreign cells, the cell lines used should be checked regularly for their identity. Numerous scientific journals and funding agencies now require proof of authentication of the cell lines used.

We help you to safeguard your research quality and the validity of your results by regularly checking your cell lines’ identity.
