Cell Line Identity – Prevent Cell Misidentification In Your Daily Lab Routine
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- Cell misidentification - What's that?
- Causes and consequences of working with the wrong cell line
- How to choose a cell authentication method
- Background of STR amplification and capillary electrophoresis (CE) for successful cell authentication and how to apply these methods correctly
In 1951 HeLa cells entered cell culture labs worldwide as the first human cell line. 70 years later, we know that at least 129 cell lines are contaminated with HeLa cells, with dramatic implications on the validity of past cell culture-related research. The fact that at least 509 cell lines are misidentified (ICLAC 2020) reveals a significant need for reliable cell authentication that is increasingly required by scientific journals and auditing authorities. Join this webinar to learn more about preventing cell misidentification by incorporating Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP) into your daily routine. Short Tandem Repeat (STR) genotyping analysis is a widely applied strategy for identifying human cell lines and is the method of choice as recommended by the ATCC Standards Development Organization. During the webinar, we will introduce the state-of-the-art solutions for STR amplification and capillary electrophoresis (CE) that enable cell in-house cell authentication.
