How to deposit your viruses with NCPV

Why deposit with us? 

Many researchers want to make their strains used in their research projects available to the wider scientific community. You can raise the profile of your peer-reviewed publications by requiring users of your strains to cite your original work, whilst retaining flexible release conditions. 

How to deposit viruses

The process for depositing strains is relatively simple and requires a dialogue between the depositor and the National Collection of Pathogenic Viruses (NCPV). We will ensure that relevant biosafety and culture information is captured. The system is deliberately flexible to allow for any depositor restrictions or requirements.

If you have difficulty obtaining dry ice or shipping infectious material please contact us for assistance.

Please wait for notification of acceptance of your strain(s) before shipping.
