Deposit for Public Access
TBRC accepts viruses classified in Risk Group 1 or 2 that have been cited in scientific literature or has special properties or applications such as use in clinical research or production of viral vaccines.
Those who wish to deposit a virus 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 virus. When TBRC finds the deposit acceptable, the depositor will be requested to send the virus with the signed deposit form.
The depositor should follow instructions for sending viruses 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 virus 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 viruses free of charge for the first two requests.
