The length of the MTA process depends on how quickly your institution approves the MTA. Approval times vary from a few hours to a few weeks depending on the institution. To expedite the process, Addgene encourages you to contact the authorized signatory at your institution to obtain any additional forms they may require of you and to let them know if you are in urgent need of the materials.
Additionally, Addgene has implemented an electronic MTA system designed to streamline the MTA process. If you are the authorized signatory for MTAs at your institution, please see our MTA page or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about electronic MTA approval.
