The Role of Cell Line Authentication in Today’s Biomedical Research World

Answers by: Erin Hall, M.S., Director of Cell Line Authentication Services, Genetica DNA Laboratories, LabCorp Specialty Testing Group.
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.
