Ordering information and material transfer agreement

How to submit an order

Orders should be in writing, preferably by e-mail using your company's or institute's e-mail account.
Please mention a purchase order number in your e-mail (or attach your purchase order) if required by your Financial Department.
Biological materials will not be shipped to private addresses.

* the BCCM/GeneCorner customer number is mentioned on the delivery note following the first order.
 

Specifications to be mentioned in the order form/letter for sample supply

  • For samples from the public collection, please specify:

    • the exact identification of the requested materials (name and accession number);

    • the format of the material in case plasmids are ordered: 1 ml plasmid-carrying culture or plasmid DNA (2,5 µg or custom amount). Please take into account that some plasmids can only be distributed as plasmid DNA (see 'Distributed as' in the online catalogue record);

    • the format of the material in case bacterial host strains are ordered: 1 ml culture or 10 vials each containing 100 µl competent cells;

    • delivery address + contact person + phone number + e-mail address;

    • your international TNT or FedEx account number or confirm that we can add the courier costs to the invoice;

    • the invoice address + VAT number (Value Added Tax; if existing);

    • e-mail address to which the invoice can be sent as a pdf file;

    • whether you prefer to pay by bank transfer or by credit card.

 

  • The release and the use of biological material from the public BCCM/GeneCorner collection may be subject to the terms of a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA). Please verify in the online catalogue description of the particular material, more specifically in the field 'Restricted distribution', which type of MTA is applicable:

Possible extra restrictions are also mentioned in the field 'Restricted distribution' and are covered by the applicable MTA.

  • For samples from the safe and patent deposit collection, please contact BCCM/GeneCorner.
