Strains are accepted in CIRM-CFBP following our acquisition policy.

CIRM-CFBP can refuse strain deposit on the basis of the originality of the strains, quality of their caracterisation or other reason (particular culture conditions, pathogenicity for humans…)

Strains are integrated in collection after having receiving them as viable and pure cultures, accompanied with they’re well completed and signed entry form.

The interest of a strains relies mainly of the quality of the information associated to the strain. So please, fill the entry form carefully. It is necessary to give us the possibility to identify the strain (copy of articles, tests, protocoles).

Entry file for series of strains

Strain deposit is free. Strains will be public, available for the researchers requesting them. CIRM-CFBP and INRA are not owners of the strains. CIRM-CFBP is the strains depositor, offering a service for biodiversity preservation.

After lyophilisation process, 2 vials of the strain can be sent to the depositor upon request (the same documents as for a normal command are needed, even the ones related to regulation (LOA, import permit)). One of thiese vial it’s for the depositor personal use, the other in order to confirm the identity of the deposited strain.

A certificate of deposit will be systematically established after the integration of strains in the collection.

We are very grateful to the scientists who trust us by depositing their strains at CIRM-CFBP!

Types strains

The rules controlling type strain deposit were modified. It is now necessary to deposit each type strain in two open collections located in two different countries.
A deposit certificate, attesting deposit, viability and availability of the strain will be provided to you in return.
