Enter a search term in the search field. This can be a variety of different things: a feature of the plasmid,
the name of the depositing lab, the PubMed ID of the publication describing the plasmid, etc.
Then click on the "Search" button.
For a more detailed search, click instead on "Advanced Search" in the menu bar.
Plasmids fitting the search will be displayed below. Click on them to view plasmid details.
Click on the "Order" button to order the plasmid. The plasmid will be added to your shopping cart.
If you are not yet logged in, you will be asked to do so.
If you do not yet have an account with the European Plasmid Repository, click on "Register" in the upper right corner.
You will automatically be re-routed to view your shopping cart.
If you wish, you can now enter a Purchase Order number from your institution in the available field. This
can also be done later at the time of payment.
To order the plasmid, click on the "Submit Order" button.
You can always check the status of your order by clicking on "My Orders" in the menu bar.
The next step is for the MTAs to be signed. Either you or your group leader will receive an email with a link for
signing the MTA. (This depends on whether the institution depositing the plasmid wants the group leader or the
recipient scientist to sign the MTA.) In addition, your Technology Transfer office will also receive an email with a link to sign the MTA.
All parties will receive by email a copy of the fully executed MTA as a PDF once everyone has signed.
Only after the MTA is signed can the plasmid be paid and shipped.
Once the MTA is signed, you will receive an email with a link to pay for the order. You can either pay for it yourself
with a credit card, or forward the email to anyone else in your institution (e.g. department secretary, finance office)
to pay the order.
Clicking on the "Pay" link in the email will bring you to the payment overview. Once again you have the option to enter
a Purchase Order number from your institution. Furthermore, if someone else is paying for the order, they can enter
their name and address by clicking on the button in the "Person Paying the Order" field. This information will then appear
on the payment receipt. After reviewing all the information, click on "Pay Now".
Payments run via the Stripe website. Enter here your credit card information and click "pay". The European Plasmid Repository
website does not receive nor store your credit card information.
Done ! You will be re-routed to a confirmation page where you can download the payment receipt. A copy of the receipt will
also be sent automatically by email to the person who placed the order.
Your plasmid will then be shipped within a few days.
