ECACC and DS Pharma – 10 years supporting cell culture science in Japan 


DS Pharma Homepage


The European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC) is pleased to commemorate 10 years of successful collaboration with DS Pharma Biomedical Co. Ltd. (DS Pharma) a subsidiary of Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma in Japan.  Our first contract was endorsed in March 2005 and since then DS Pharma have proved many times that their objectives match our own as they distribute ECACC cell lines, associated products and provide authoritative advice to laboratories throughout Japan. We look forward to another 10 years of working together.


ECACC, part of the Culture Collections of Public Health England, was established 30 years ago to provide a trustworthy source of authentic cell cultures for use in the worldwide scientific community. It is imperative that ECACC selects partners and distributors like DS Pharma who share our goal of protecting and improving people’s health and recognise that the role of cell culture in innovative research is central to that aim.


Because cell culture technology is so important and cell authenticity has become an increasingly critical issue ECACC works with several partner organisations to ensure global distribution of more than 2000 authenticated cell lines and associated products.
