I am switching institutions and want to bring plasmids from Addgene with me. Do I need to get a new MTA?

Yes, you will need to get a new MTA under your new institution. To obtain the MTA through Addgene, you would need to place an order for the materials and your new institution would need to sign the necessary MTAs. We can offer a discount of $30 per plasmid for this option. Please email us after placing your order so that we can apply the discount.

Alternatively, you may contact each of 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.
