Proprietary Strain Deposition

UTEX accepts private strains that will be maintained by cryopreservation and are available exclusively to the depositor.

Cryopreservation stabilizes genomic integrity, preserves culture quality, minimizes maintenance costs and reduces the risk of catastrophic loss. For more information about this service, please submit the Proprietary Strain Deposition form (2015 rates). If you are interested in depositing a strain which would be available to the public, please visit the Public Strain Accessioning page.
