Purchasing Through Specific Vendors

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.


There are three parties involved in placing an Addgene order: the PI, Cecilia Stodd, and purchasing. For questions contact Emily Bennin.

  • STEP 1
    PI places order on Addgene.org. Add items to the cart and begin check-out procedure. At the MTA (Material Transfer Agreement) screen, add the PI’s information as Recipient Scientist.
  • STEP 2
    Email purchasing and Emily Bennin with information about who to contacted regarding the order. This will send the invoice to the purchasing department so the item(s) can be paid for once the MTA is complete.
  • STEP 3
    Create an Aestiva record with the item information, price, funding, etc. and list in the special instructions that an MTA has been initiated.
  • STEP 4
    Forward the email from Addgene with a link to the MTA to Cecilia Stodd or Hailey Johnson. They will send the PI a MTA checklist to complete (required by L&S) and facilitate processing the MTA with valid biosafety protocol through WISPER.
  • STEP 5
    The PI and purchaser will receive notice when the MTA is requested and when the MTA is complete. The item will ship once the MTA is complete, and purchasing will receive an invoice.
  • STEP 6
    Purchasing will add credit card information for the order through the link Addgene sends. Once the order is paid for, the Aestiva record will be updated and we wait for the item to arrive.
