Ask the Expert – The Role of Cell Line Authentication in Today’s Biomedical Research World
Ask the Expert is a feature on the Cell Culture Dish where both industry and academic experts answer your questions. A range of topics is covered and suggestions for future Ask the Expert sessions are welcome.
Our Next Session –
Inadvertent cell line contamination is a serious concern for many researchers. Failure to monitor cell lines for contamination may result in compromised data. Current estimates are that 18% to 36% of all active cell lines are either cross-contaminated or misidentified.1 This level of concern has led a number of journals to actively encourage cell line authentication prior to submission for publication. Cell line authentication testing is a good quality control step for any laboratory utilizing human cell lines and/or stem cell lines. If you want to set your research on a strong foundation, please join us for this week’s Ask the Expert – “The Role of Cell Line Authentication in Today’s Biomedical Research World,” and ask any questions you have about Cell Line Authentication.
