Promega has partnered with ATCC to offer unparalleled STR testing service for human cell line authentication.

This service provides easy access to proven and comprehensive validation techniques. Promega's proprietary PowerPlex® and GenePrint® STR technology coupled with ATCC's considerable experience profiling human cell lines and extensive internal assets around STR profiling data interpretation is particularly relevant for cancer cell lines, which frequently have genetic aberrations, such as gain and/or loss of alleles and gene translocations and rearrangements.

Human cell lines are used in research and development as models of normal and cancer tissues. However, a significant proportion of cell lines are misidentified as a result of contamination or poor laboratory techniques. The consequences of using misidentified cell lines have included the retraction of published papers and the inability to reproduce research results, which leads to waste of resources in support of research. The ATCC and Promega partnership represents an important step in the remediation of these issues.

At this time the service is only available in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
