  • 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);

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

    • the invoice address if different from the shipping address;

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