Enhanced Diagnostic Tools
The availability of well-characterized, viable human tissues
and cell lines accompanied by pertinent donor data is a prerequisite for a great
deal of current biomedical and transplantation research. Unfortunately, the misidentification
and cross-contamination of human tissue cell lines occurs frequently. It is estimated
that over 20% of all established cell lines are misclassified by cell type or species
of origin, and over 33% of all cell lines suffer inter- or intra-species cross-contamination
(1-3). The ATCC, along with the Coriell Institute for Medical Research,
the European Collection of Cell Cultures (ECACC), the Deutsche Sammlung von Mikrorganismen
and Zellkulturen (DSMZ), and the Japanese Collection of Research Resources have
all received cell line submissions that, upon authentication, were determined to
have been misidentified by the depositor (4,5).
This poses a serious threat to the legitimacy of research findings produced from
any of these cell cultures.
To aid clients in need of cell line identity validation, Bio-Synthesis (BSI) offers
fast and reliable human cell line identification services to authenticate your cell lines. Scientists, with experience in STR DNA profiling, SNP genotyping, high-resolution Luminex HLA DNA typing, tissue microarray analysis and bioinformaticsdata analysis, perform DNA Identification at our accredited
DNA testing facilities. Our commitment to total quality management assures our client's that our scientists
employ efficient methods to confirming species' identity and detect cross-contamination,
authenticating our client's cell lines in full compliance with NIH recommendations
and scholarly journal guidelines.
