Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells are an adherent epithelial cell line derived from the kidney of an adult cocker spaniel in 1958. This cell line was deposited at ATCC ® by S. H. Madin and N. B. Darby, Jr. The Working Cell Bank (WCB) is intended to be used as routine working inventory for this cell type. MDCK cells support the replication of a number of viruses, including influenza virus.

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell culture suspension frozen in cell growth medium (95%) and DMSO (5%) cryo-preservatant. Sufficient cells are provided to initiate at least one new culture.
