Misidentification and cross-contamination of cell lines is a recurrent problem in life sciences research. In response, various scientific journals and funding agencies are enforcing strict usage of well-identified cell lines for research purposes and that cell line authentication must be performed prior to grant approval and/or publication. abm offers comprehensive Cell Line Authentication Services using Short Tandem Repeat Profiling (STR) technology to ensure the correct identity of your cells, avoiding the risk of misidentified or contaminated cell lines in your research.

Our STR Profiling procedure follows the International Cell Line Authentication Committee (ICLAC) standard ASN-002 and our STR report meets the requirements for funding, publication and quality controls. Simply submit your samples for a fast, affordable and effective way to authenticate your cell lines.


Our Cell Line Authentication Services are available for human, mouse, rat, and canine cell lines. To initiate an order please email us at order@abmGood.com.
