Does Addgene facilitate the transfer of commercial vectors?

Addgene does not transfer commercially available vectors or unmodified vectors obtained from other labs. If the plasmids contain vector backbones purchased from commercial entities, Addgene may include additional terms in an ancillary agreement or limited use label license. Please check the company websites for additional information and terms.

In general, please note that with regard to plasmids constructed using commercial vector backbones, you cannot: a) use the plasmids for any commercial purpose, or b) re-create vector backbones that you can otherwise purchase from the company.
