ATCC microbial reference strains are produced with highest standards of quality materials you can depend on for reproducible results. Choose from among the world’s largest collection of ATCC’s bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi, protozoa, nucleic acids, and molecular tools.
The ATCC Bacteriology Collection is a diversified assemblage of prokaryotes, containing more than 18,000 strains in over 750 genera. The Collection holds more than 3,600 type cultures of validly described species, and nearly 500 bacteriophages.
ATCC houses a wide assortment of viral cultures for use in research related to pathogenesis, epidemiology, molecular assay development, and vaccine discovery and production.
The ATCC Mycology Collection is a trusted resource center housing a diverse assortment of filamentous fungi and yeasts, representing over 7,600 species, including 4,100 type strains and 1,500 genera. The mycology collection also offers over 32,000 yeast genetic strains.
The ATCC Protistology Collection is the only general service collection of taxonomically diverse living stock protists in the United States, and the only large service repository of parasitic protozoa in the world. Cultures are authenticated using morphological and molecular techniques
ATCC Microbial Panels are functionally relevant strain sets, enabling faster, more intelligent choices when selecting cultures for laboratory research. Each panel is a research tool, useful for a variety of applications.
Microbial Panel 1_ MP1 Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci Panel
Microbial Panel 2_ MP2_MRSA
ATCC offers a variety of nucleic acid preparations from our Bacteriology, Mycology, Protistology, Virology, and Cell Biology collections.
Genomic nucleic acids are aseptically prepared from minimally passaged ATCC microorganisms and cell lines that have been phenotypically and genotypically authenticated to confirm species identity and functional activity. These whole genome preparations save you the time and cost associated with culturing and extracting nucleic acids yourself. Also available in the Genomic Nucleic Acid collection for selected microbes are Quantitative Nucleic acids
Synthetic nucleic acids are designed and developed by the experts in microbial genomics to include key target regions from difficult-to-culture, un-culturable, or high-containment microorganisms. Each quantitative preparation is supported by stringent quality control analyses to ensure product identity, stability, and functionality with molecular applications.
