CLS Cell Lines Service GmbH
CLS Cell Lines Service supports the scientific community in conserving valuable cell lines. The CLS cell bank (cell repository) covers about 500 cell lines, which have been isolated from various tissues, tumors, and species, with the focus on human cell lines. Every year, new cell lines are deposited in the cell bank, mostly by licensing in or as a result of new cooperations. As the cell lines are controlled on a daily basis by microscopy, many data have emerged which resulted in the publication of the ‚Atlas of Living Cell Cultures‘ in May 2013. This comprehensive atlas is a co-production with Prof. Toni Lindl.
Additionally, due to the conservation and quality control of the cell lines CLS GmbH has extended its skills and therefore offers a couple of services such as Mycoplasma testing or conducting transfections. Furthermore, CLS manufactures products making use of the cell lines such as genomic DNA, RNA, whole cell lysates and snap frozen cell pellets.
Permanent as well as primary cell lines are recognized as a major part in fundamental research. The increasing comprehension and knowledge of the manifold of processes going on inside each single cell enhances the understanding of the molecular processes of diseases such as cancer. Only then new therapies and drugs can be developed. Furthermore, the usage of cell cultures in vitro to clarify fundamental questions can replace an increasing number of in vivo experiments. We at CLS GmbH aim to support the scientists who are working in the Life Sciences, Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Medical Diagnostics in the daily routine using cell cultures.
CLS Cell Lines Service serves the international scientific community and has distributors in many countries.
