Authentication of Human Cell Lines

The number of false cell lines in circulation is unacceptably high. Use of cancer cell line models is impaired by reliance on misidentified examples representing entities with biological characteristics different from those supposed. To let researcher check the true identity of their cell lines - a requirement increasingly imposed by scientific journals and funding agencies - the DSMZ offers a cell line authentication service.

For detailed information how to submit samples for testing, please fill in the submission form.
