WiCell is a non-profit organization established in 1999, headquartered in Madison, WI. WiCell is a supporting organization of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. WiCell has consistently worked to advance stem cell technology through research and education, and by providing quality cell lines, technical support and characterization services to the scientific community. WiCell's Stem Cell Bank is currently home to over 1300 stem cell lines deposited by researchers from around the globe. Available cell lines include disease models, controls, reporter lines, and GMP compliant cell banks and are open to additional deposits if you are interested in having your cell lines distributed to the larger scientific community. Technical support is available for every line we distribute, and our exceptional team is always available to help you troubleshoot and support your research every step of the way.
In addition to distributing high-quality cell lines, WiCell offers characterization services, quality control testing, and contract cell banking to both academic and commercial groups. Characterization services offerings include karyotyping by G-band, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), microarray analysis, spectral karyotyping (SKY), short tandem repeat (STR) analysis and mycoplasma testing. Quality Control testing of materials and reagents is available to mitigate the risk in purchasing a large lot of materials or ensure confidence through independent validation of a new reagent, medium, or matrix intended for use in pluripotent stem cell culture. Our highly experienced banking and distribution team also offers contract cell banking services to outside organizations. All offerings are available on a fee-for-service basis.
