A strain deposit in CIRM-BP

The deposit of strains into the CIRM-BP is associated to a contrat specifying the rights and duties of the depositor and of the CIRM-BP.

Open deposit

Do you wish to guarantee the longevity of your pathogenic bacterial strain(s) of interest (Type strain, sequenced strain, published strain, patented strain...) by preserving it (them) durably in the best available conditions?

Do you wish to increase the visibility of your pathogenic bacterial strains and facilitate their dissemination to the scientific community without going through the tedious steps of administrative procedures and of preparation of shipments?

The CIRM-BP offers you to deposit your strains in the frame of an "open deposit contract":
After re-identification and whenever it is possible, your strain(s) will be preserved in frozen form in liquid nitrogen in two distinct conservation sites. The strains will also be lyophilized under vacuum in glass ampoules and stored at constant low temperature. If applicable, your strains will be distributed in this form after signing, by applicants wishing to dispose of them, of an biological material transfer agreement stipulating their rights and duties.


   a) Public institutions Research/Education


   b) Private institutions

150.00 € excl tax

Confidential Safe deposit

Do you wish to guarantee the conservation quality of your pathogenic bacterial strain(s) and its (their) sustainability while remaining the sole owners and users of this (these) resource(s)?

The CIRM-BP offers you to deposit your strains in the frame of an "Confidential Safe deposit":
Whenever it is possible, your strain(s) will be both preserved in frozen form in liquid nitrogen in two distinct conservation sites as well as freeze-drying under vacuum in glass ampoules stored at low and constant temperature. For security reasons, strains are identified at the species level prior to conservation. The responsability of the origin of the strains and their provenance is entirely assumed by the applicant who will retain ownership and exclusive use of the deposit strains.

For your convenience, the Confidential Safe deposit contract may allow restricted access to some of your partners, according to the terms and conditions defined by you as applicant.
