Benefits of Depositing Plasmids at Addgene

Depositing plasmids at Addgene helps your lab and supports the scientific community! We handle long-term storage, quality control, shipping logistics, MTAs, and more. 5,961 labs have deposited materials with Addgene — see what some of them are saying!

Increase the impact and visibility of your research

Addgene makes it easy for other researchers to find and use your materials to accelerate future discoveries. We provide high-quality educational content on our website and blog, curate collections on a variety of topics, and host a web page for each lab's materials.

Support transparency and reproducibility

Sharing research materials is required by many funding agencies, journals, and institutions. By sharing your plasmids, you demonstrate your commitment to transparency and allow your work to be repeated and built upon by other labs. Plus, it's the nice thing to do!

Save time and money

Instead of spending your valuable time and resources preparing, packaging, and shipping samples to other researchers, let us take care of the logistics for you. Our shipping team will help navigate country-specific customs and export regulations across the globe so you don't have to. You'll also earn free plasmids with Addgene Rewards Points!

Keep your important plasmids archived for the future

Don't stress about losing your stocks in the freezer or struggling to remember the cloning sites in an old plasmid. Addgene sequences your plasmids and stores your samples in triplicate (including one at an off-site facility), for easy future access by you and others.

Track requests for your plasmids

We distribute materials to scientists all over the world. We'll provide you with distribution data that you can share with colleagues, organizations, or funders to demonstrate the impact of your research.
