As a non-profit repository, Addgene distributes materials on behalf of the institutions who deposit with us. The majority of the materials in our repository are currently only available to academic or non-profit organizations with a limited portion approved for distribution to for-profit/industry entities.
You can find a full list of the items available to for-profit organizations on our industry page at: https://www.addgene.org/industry.
We believe that making high quality research reagents available to all researchers is in line with Addgene's mission; therefore, we're working to expand our collection of plasmids available to industry scientists. To help us identify materials that would be useful to the community, please feel to Suggest a Plasmid For Industry Availability. Please note that we cannot guarantee all plasmid suggestions will become available, but we’ll do our best.
To stay informed as more plasmids become available for industry and commercial scientists, please sign up for Addgene's Industry Distribution Update Emails.
For those materials not available to you through Addgene, we recommend contacting the institution that originally deposited them with us to request to obtain them directly. If you are interested in specific items from our collection, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the catalog number of the items, and we may be able to provide you with contact information for the depositing institution.
