MELBOURNE, Australia—Earlier this year, the International Cell Line Authentication Committee (ICLAC) updated its “Advice to Scientists” guidelines for incorporating authentication into everyday culture practice. As noted on the ICLAC website, “This document takes the most important things a scientist needs to know about authenticating cell lines and squeezes that information into two pages for quick and easy reference.” The document summarizes what to consider when planning a project or grant application, initiating work on a new project, initiating new cell lines, freezing down stocks and determining minimum requirements for testing human and non-human cell lines. The document is available at http://iclac.org/wp-content/uploads/Advice-to-Scientists_09- Jan-2014.pdf.
 
ICLAC was formed in 2012 to make cell line misidentification more visible and to promote awareness and authentication testing as effective ways to combat it, and it maintains a database of cross-contaminated or otherwise misidentified cell lines and a website of resources for authentication testing.
