In principle, transferring JCRB cell lines to a third party is not allowed.
When we receive a request for cells, applicants must sign the “Request and Agreement Form (Form A)”, which specifies that applicants should not transfer the cell lines to a third party. It is important to protect the intellectual rights of the depositor/developer of cell lines and also to assure the quality of JCRB Cell Lines. Please note that the above terms do not apply for collaborative research purposes.

However, because all cell lines have different limitations, please contact us if you are not sure if specific cell lines can be shared or not.
