Deposit for Public Access
TBRC accepts cell lines or cell lines harboring plasmids or viruses classified in Risk Group 1 or 2 that have been cited in scientific literature or have special properties or characteristics such as clinical research applications or production of viral vaccines, etc.
Those who wish to deposit a cell line at TBRC are obliged to agree with the TBRC deposit policy and terms and conditions, and should submit a deposit form through the TBRC website or contact TBRC staff prior to sending the cell line. When TBRC finds the deposit acceptable, the depositor will be requested to send the cell line with the signed deposit form.
The depositor should follow instructions for sending cell lines for deposit at the Thailand Bioresource Research Center (TBRC). The depositor is responsible for any charges occurring during shipment of materials to TBRC.
Preservation and quality tests (viability, purity and identity) take approximately 60 to 90 days. After quality tests, the cell line will be further opened for public access. A certificate of deposit (COD) can be requested through the TBRC website (request certificate of deposit).
The depositor may request the deposited cell lines free of charge for the first two requests.
