Technical requirements

Plasmids in a bacterial host

Please send:

  • 3 active, freeze-dried or frozen cultures of the same batch

One or more these cultures will be subjected to a viability test and subsequently serve for the preparation of a stock of cryopreserved cells.


Plasmids as isolated material

Please send:

  • 2 times minimum 20 µg plasmid DNA, in suspension, freeze-dried, frozen or precipitated in alcohol

The plasmid DNA must have a sufficient degree of purity to ensure successful transformation. The recommended bacterial host strain must be stated and - if not available at the depositary - also be furnished without the plasmid concerned. In the latter case, the storage of the appropriate host strain for the period of at least 30 years will be charged separately.
