Russian Cell Culture Collection (RCCC) is formed in 1978. The founder of the creation of Collection was professor, honored worker of science G.P. Pinaev (1929–2013).
The main goals of RCCC are - collection of cell lines, including isolation of new cell lines for preservation and enlargement of genofond; preservation of cell lines
(cryoconservation); characterization of cell lines; deposition of author's cell lines; creation of data bank; distribution of cultivated cells.
Cell samples are provided in two weeks after preliminary request.
RCCC consists of 8 specialized collection.
1. Collection of cell cultures of vertebrates.
