Terms and conditions (go to product details in the TBRC catalog )

TBRC holds a wide variety of microorganisms for education and research in Thailand and overseas. The TBRC catalog also includes microorganisms available from TBRC partners. Customers are obliged to agree with the TBRC distribution policy and the terms and conditions in the Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) or other contracts under which TBRC operates.


Orders can be made electronically through the TBRC catalog. After TBRC approves the order, the customer will be requested to send a signed MTA and proof of payment through post to TBRC. The requested microorganisms will be distributed after TBRC receives the signed MTA and payment.


Microorganisms will be distributed in liquid/freeze-dried ampoules or on agar slants at ambient conditions. Liquid/freeze-dried microorganisms will be shipped out within 7 working days after TBRC receives payment and all of the required documents. Fresh cultures may take longer.

Reclamation policy

The customer should strictly follow instructions for revival and cultivation. Fresh cultures should be immediately subcultured and checked after receipt. Unsatisfactory microorganisms will be handled according to the reclamation policy of each collection.
