All materials transferred through Addgene are accompanied by a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA). For each order you place with Addgene, we will generate a new MTA for you that is specific to the items in your order.
Addgene offers several different MTA approval options to help streamline the process for your institution:
Standard Approval - average approval time: 4 days
Electronic Approval (eMTA) – average approval time: 2 days
Master Reception Agreement – average approval time: automatic for most items
*MTAs require review if any material in the order requires an Ancillary Agreement that your organization has not chosen to auto-approve.
If you are interested in speeding up MTA approval times at your institution, please have your technology transfer office or legal department contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
