TBRC offers molecular materials for education and research in molecular biology, including cloning vectors, expression vectors and host microorganisms for transformation studies. 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.

Specific restrictions

Molecular materials may contain products owned by third parties and are subject to specific restrictions. The restrictions are mentioned in the catalog. Please carefully read the restrictions before placing an order.


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 materials will be distributed after TBRC receives the signed MTA and payment.

Host microorganisms will be distributed in liquid/freeze-dried ampoules or on agar slants at ambient conditions.

Liquid/freeze-dried materials and dried DNA will be shipped out within 7 days after TBRC receives payment and all required documents. Fresh cultures may take longer.
