Preparing for a project involving cell culture for the new term

 ECACC cell culture flask


Calling all project leaders, supervisors and postgraduate students to consider the following while planning new projects involving cell culture:

  • Start your project with new authenticated cell lines from ECACC - more and more journals are increasingly requiring the use of authenticated cell lines in order to publish papers or obtain grant funding
  • Send your existing cell cultures to ECACC for a full health-check. Contamination and mis-identification of cell lines is a long-standing problem that can lead to erroneous data, misinterpreted results, and extensive costs. We have a comprehensive range of cell culture services for a full health check
