From February 2015 CFAR will be implementing new MTAs for ordering reagents from the repository. The MTAs are designed to protect the intellectual property rights of the scientists/institutes who have donated to CFAR. This will allow CFAR to maintain the ability to offer unique non-commercially available materials to the global HIV research community.
We are happy to help you fill out the news forms - you should email CFAR@nibsc.org or phone 01707 641000 Ext 1221. We will try to reduce delays in the supply of reagents as far as possible.
The MTA must be completed by the requestor. Please include a brief description of the research the products are being requested for. The MTA must be signed by your authorised signatory for your institute/company and sent to us for counter-signing. You will receive a signed completed copy by return post for your records.
Ordering reagents from CFAR is easy. All that is required is the completion of a material transfer agreement (MTA):
Send completed forms to CFAR@nibsc.org or fax them to +44 (0)1707 641060
Note: Some reagents require a special MTA (see below). Completion of these MTAs is also required before an order can be approved.
If you have not ordered products from NIBSC before you will first need to complete a new customer account form before placing an order and email/fax it to CFAR@nibsc.org / +44 (0)1707 641060.
