About ATCC

A trusted biological resource for the worldwide research community

ALFAGEN collaborates with ATCC, the leading global biological material sourcing and standards organization focused on the acquisition, validation, production, conservation, development and distribution of standard reference microorganisms, cell lines and other materials. In this collaboration, ATCC protects traditional collectibles, supports scientific research and inventions, and develops high-quality products, standards and services that improve the health of global populations.

The ATCC was founded in 1925 by a scientific committee when it realized the need for a centralized collection of microorganisms to serve scientists around the world. Its partnership with ALFAGEN has been going on for many years.
