ATCC Vector-borne Research Materials – New!

ATCCBillions of people worldwide are at risk from microorganisms transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and other vectors. Due to the complexity of vector-borne pathogen transmission, and the unpredictable nature of insect vectors, vector-borne illnesses are among the most difficult infectious diseases to predict, prevent, and control.

To help support the development of molecular-based assays for pathogen detection or quantification, ATCC is pleased to announce the release of genomic DNA isolated from Babesia microti, and synthetically-derived RNA representing Dengue virus types I-IV.

ATCC® No. Product Format Quantity
30221D Genomic Babesia microti DNA Frozen ≥ 5 x 103 copies/µL
VR-3228SD Synthetic Dengue virus type 1 RNA Frozen 1x 105 – 1 x 106 copies/ µL
VR-3229SD Synthetic Dengue virus type 2 RNA Frozen 1x 105 – 1 x 106 copies/ µL
VR-3230SD Synthetic Dengue virus type 3 RNA Frozen 1x 105 – 1 x 106 copies/ µL
VR-3231SD Synthetic Dengue virus type 4 RNA Frozen 1x 105 – 1 x 106 copies/ µL


These ATCC® Genuine Nucleics can be used for assay development, verification, validation, monitoring of day-to-day test variation, and lot-to-lot performance of molecular-based assays. Moreover, their quantitative format allows for the generation of a standard curve for quantitative PCR (qPCR).
