DefiningCitation  +
Definition Global nonprofit biological resource cente Global nonprofit biological resource center (BRC) and research organization that provides biological products, technical services and educational programs to private industry, government and academic organizations. Its mission is to acquire, authenticate, preserve, develop and distribute biological materials, information, technology, intellectual property and standards for the advancement and application of scientific knowledge.<br /> The primary purpose of ATCC is to use its resources and experience as a BRC to become the world leader in standard biological reference materials management, intellectual property resource management and translational research as applied to biomaterial development, standardization and certification.<br /> ATCC serves U.S. and international researchers by characterizing cell lines, bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa, as well as developing and evaluating assays and techniques for validating research resources and preserving and distributing biological materials to the public and private sector research communities. Deposit Services: Redundant storage is essential for the long-term preservation of biological materials. For over 30 years, ATCC has provided secure and reliable deposit services supporting basic to applied research * BioProducts: Cell, microbial and molecular genomics products for the life sciences * BioServices: Bio-materials management; basic repository to complex partnership level services * BioStandards: Biological Reference Material and Consensus Standards for the life science community s Standards for the life science community
