Biological Resource Center, NITE (NBRC)

Request for Certificate


A certificate for distribution of microorganisms is available upon request. Items that we certify are scientific names and NBRC numbers of strains, date of distribution, lot numbers of L-dried ampoules (if possible) and nucleotide sequences determined by the NBRC (if possible). Please request by e-mail, postal mail or FAX. We cannot accept it by telephone.

The document to certify the depository of microorganisms into the NBRC, "Notice of Acceptance of Biological Genetic Resources", is NOT in this category. We will send it to the depositor free of charge.
