I am changing institutions, can I bring materials ordered from Addgene to my new location?

In order to transfer materials to a new institution, a new MTA is required. To obtain the MTA through Addgene, you would need to place a new order for the materials on our website and your new institution would need to sign the necessary agreements. 

We can offer a discounted price of $30 per plasmid for this option. If you plan to purchase the items again through Addgene, please email with your new order number after it has been placed on our website, and we will apply the discount at that time. Please note: Due to the legal agreements in place with our depositing institutions, we do need to ship the materials to your new organization even if you plan to bring them from your former location. 

Alternatively, you can contact the institutions that originally deposited the materials and ask them for permission to use the materials at your new institution. Addgene is not authorized by those institutions to grant such permissions.
