Policies & Legal

  1. Not all strains may be available at any particular time. If live cultures are embargoed for a period of time purchase of DNA or toxin extracts may be arranged.
  2. Cawthron Institute requires that a Biological Material Agreement, outlining terms and conditions of supply and research, is accepted by all clients ordering cultures before cultures are dispatched.
  3. For strains originating from outside New Zealand permission to share will have to be sought from the source of strain. We will try to help make contact with the original source if client prefers to go directly.
  4. Cryopreserved strains are not available immediately – it will take several weeks to establish live culture ready for dispatch.
