New advanced in-vitro models developed by ATCC for toxicology and translational cancer research
Abstract: Since its’ foundation in 1925, the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) has served the biomedical community by providing premier cell culture and microbiology reference materials. It has since grown into the worlds’ largest general cell culture collection, supplying cell and biological materials to researchers in over 150 countries.
In recent years, ATCC has developed new advanced models which assist researchers in a wide spectrum of biomedical disciplines. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the latest advanced models designed for translational cancer research as well as toxicology. These models include; isogenic cell lines with mutations in key oncogenes such as RAS; an Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) reporter assay; human Telomerase Reverse Transcriptase (hTERT) cells; a Primary Cell collection; Neural Progenitor and stem cells. The overarching aim of ATCC in this aspect is to enable researchers to produce reliable and effective data which can be translated efficiently into clinical trials; ultimately benefiting patients. The advantages of using these models and the ways in which these can be utilized for translational research will be discussed in further detail. For further information, please visit our technical specialists at the ATCC booth where information regarding the toxicology and cancer research solutions will be discussed in further technical detail.
