Cell Line Distribution

As a bi-institutional facility the Antibody and Bioresource Core Facility distributes cell lines developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and The Rockefeller University. If the facility does not possess one developed at these institutions, we will make every effort to identify a source from which we can procure it.


All cell lines submitted to the facility after 2013:

  • Have tested negative for mycoplasma
  • Pass other cell lines specific tests to access the quality of the culture, for example karyotyping for stem cells
  • Come with the STR profile for the cell lines and a comprehensive information sheet


The cost for one vial is dependent on how expensive it is to culture and the tests performed to confirm the culture is good enough to distribute, but have historically been less than ATCC rates.

Send all inquires to and we will reply within 1 business day indicating if we carry the cell line and how much it will cost.
