Read the scientific rationale for why cell lineage tracking is key for reproducibility.
We describe the genetic impact of cell culture protocols and media choices on the evolution of cell lines.
FIND Cell helps to alleviate the pressure on scientists of tracking these daily steps.

Our contribution to impact
Cell lines are at the heart of biomedical discovery. But did you know that for decades the majority of cell models used in research are of European decent?
In our Commentary in Cell we discuss the importance of considering and reporting the ancestral origin of the cell lines used in research. In our Commentary we provide simple action steps to shift this paradigm.
Be part of the change and contribute to inclusive preclinical research.
FIND Cell is tested and optimized in collaboration with cell biologists working at
Do you spend too much time on…
- Searching for cell lines in the freezer?
- Searching for cell line information from people who left your lab?
- Wondering who is culturing which cell line in the lab?
- Worrying about Mycoplasma contamination?
- Worrying that you publish with an incorrect cell line?
Take FIND Cell for a spin, and discover how we can make your cell culture workflow easier, more accurate and (honestly) more fun!
Created for Individuals and Research Teams
Explore how FIND Cell can support your lab!
It will change the way the next generation of scientists approach cell culture work.
With both NIH grants and top journals requiring cell line verification, FIND Cell makes it easy to fulfill these reporting requirements.
In particular, I think cancer labs, where misidentification of cell lines is common, will love using it.

I love that FIND Cell leverages next-gen sequencing technology for cell line authentication, but I also love that it makes good old-fashioned record-keeping elegant and simple.
I hands down recommend FIND Cell as one stop to all your documentation, lineage tracing and collaboration needs!
I have never worked with another tool that streamlines the administrative aspects of cell culture work like FIND Cell.
I work in a cancer research lab which has struggled with working with cell lines that were later proven to be something different to what was advertised.
FIND Cell makes me feel more confident about my cell lines, and my experiments and provides a great record for tracing back any problems that can arise in a normal lab environment.
Plus all your work can be saved as pdf or printed if you want to work your Materials and Methods before manuscript submission, or if you just want to keep a hard copy of your work!
