At its inception in the 1920s, ATCC was regarded as simply a microbe culture collection, a repository of microorganisms scientists could draw from to conduct their research to make new discoveries. Today, ATCC provides the world’s leading scientists with the largest and most diverse collections of biological materials, including not only microbe products but also cell products, molecular genomics tools, and nucleic acids. We’ve also provided services, such as cell authentication and a host of depositing resources. And we’ve continued to advocate for reproducibility in science, offering standards and high-quality products cited by agencies worldwide. As a result, we’ve become a trusted partner with members of the life science community, collaborating to improve global health and well-being and to address some of the world’s greatest health threats.
