|Robust cell-lines identification requires reliable databases of cell-lines fingerprints. Mass spectrometric fingerprinting of mammalian cell-lines is a promising way to achieve the goal of fast, cheap, simple and reliable cell-lines authentication. However, general and standardized method for mass spectrometric fingerprinting of the whole mammalian cell-lines is not available to date. We developed, optimized and validated MALDI-TOF mass spectrometric method for reliable, specific and reproducible whole-cell fingerprinting of mammalian cell-lines. Quality and robustness of mass spectrometric fingerprints is demonstrated by statistical analysis of experimental data. Developed method for the whole mammalian cell-lines fingerprinting, in contrast to actual procedures, is inexpensive, fast and it opens the door towards routine cell authentication.
