American Type Culture Collection (ATCC)

ATCC’s collections include a wide range of biological materials for research, including cell lines, molecular genomics tools, microorganisms, and bioproducts. The organization holds an extensive collection:

- More than 3,400 continuous cell lines available by species, tissue/disease types, and signaling pathways.
- Tumor cell and molecular panels for cancer research, annotated with gene mutations and molecular profiles.
- Ethnic and gender diverse induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) collections derived from normal/disease   tissues, as well as adult human mesenchymal stem cells and mouse embryonic stem cells.
- Donor diverse normal human primary cells and hTERT immortalized cells.
- Dissociation and transfection reagents, classical media formulations and supplements, and sera.
- Microbial panels for research related to infectious disease, antibiotic-resistance, food and environmental   testing, and population studies.
- Over 18,000 bacterial strains useful in industry applications, assay development, quality control, and   environmental studies.
- More than 3,000 human and animal viruses isolated from various sources.
- Fungi and yeast representing over 7,600 species.
- Taxonomically diverse protists including, parasitic protozoa and algae.
- More than 1,000 genomic and synthetic nucleic acids, as well as certified reference materials.
- Over 500 microbial cultures recommended as quality control reference strains.
