Regardless of their origin cell line cross-contamination is a very real risk. This risk increases in both research groups who maintain immortal cells over a number of years and those who do not source their cells directly from a recognised repository like ATCC®. A growing number of high impact journals including biotechniques, Cancer Research and Nature now require information on the authentication of any human cell line used in a scientific study prior to reviewing a submitted paper. There is also increasing evidence that research bodies will require evidence of Cell Line Authentication as part of their grant application review process.
