There is no charge for isolates; however, all requestors (except NARSA, NIAID-funded “Core Investigators”) are required to pay shipping costs.
Registered users must have an account with an overnight shipping company and provide their account number to the NARSA program so that the shipping company can bill the requestor directly. The requestor’s carrier must be able to ship packages containing dry ice and biohazardous materials, if applicable. Isolates will not be shipped collect.
Additional requirements are outlined in the registration form (PDF).
