TBRC provides a high-quality safe deposit facility by preserving viruses at optimal conditions with all proprietary rights retained by the depositor. TBRC accepts viruses classified in Risk Group 1 or 2.
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.
Instructions for sending viruses for deposit at the Thailand Bioresource Research Center (TBRC) should be followed when sending the virus to TBRC. The depositor is responsible for any charges occurring during shipment of materials to TBRC. A certificate of deposit (COD) can be requested through the TBRC website (request certificate of deposit).
