What Our Depositing Scientists are Saying

  • Addgene has done a first class job and has, at the same time, taken an enormous burden off my back and my budget. Almost all of [my] requests are forwarded to Addgene and they seem to be doing an excellent job!

    Dr. Robert Weinberg,
    Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA)
  • Addgene has an easy-to-use interface for entering and retrieving plasmid data. I have been in contact with Addgene staff throughout the process, and they have been exceptionally helpful and responsive. Addgene is an energetic organization that cares about the scientists that it works with and cares about getting the details right.

    Dr. David Waugh,
    National Cancer Institute, NIH (Frederick, MD)
  • Addgene not only reduces significant time spent handling plasmids requests, it allows all researchers involved to get on with the science.

    Dr. Reuben Shaw,
    Salk Institute for Biological Studies (San Diego, CA)
  • The ability to deposit vectors associated with our lab for distribution by Addgene is extremely useful and productive, enabling me and my staff to focus on research and educational tasks instead. [Addgene has] exceeded my high expectations in terms of ease of contributing, format of an excellent web portal, and overall professionalism. I would strongly recommend Addgene to my colleagues.

    Dr. Guy Caldwell,
    University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa, AL)
  • Addgene is an incredible saving of time and effort. [Addgene] also makes sure of the quality of the plasmid being sent out, which reflects positively back on our lab. An excellent service.

    Joseph Goldman,
    Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA)
  • This is a great support that not only saves my laboratory time, but ensures that scientists interested in our reagents obtain them in a more timely way.

    Dr. Karla Kirkegaard,
    Stanford University (Stanford, CA)
  • I have been very pleased with the customer service. Any problems or questions that I have had have been answered in a timely and helpful manner. The customer service has made it much easier to ensure quick and easy deposit of plasmids. Our plasmid requests have decreased significantly, which frees up a good portion of time.

  • I think Addgene is a wonderful resource. It means less time for us sending out plasmids, yet we can still make them freely available to anyone who requests them.

    Dr. Alex Toker,
    Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (Boston, MA)

What Our Requesting Scientists are Saying

  • Addgene provided plasmids which I would not have otherwise had access to… My experience with Addgene has been very pleasant, with a lot of contact with staff, who were all wonderfully helpful.

    Jessica Learmont,
    University of Capetown, South Africa (South Africa)
  • It is much quicker and easier to get the plasmid than contacting the lab and I was able to quickly move on with the next set of experiments. I was also able to get a broad range of constructs so I have been able to carry out more interesting experiments.

    Dr. Fiona Menzies,
    Cambridge University (United Kingdom)
  • It made receiving plasmids from other labs so much easier and also the maps that came with the plasmids helped for subcloning.

    Dr. Daksha Patel,
    University of Rochester (Rochester, NY)
  • Addgene has facilitated the attainment of plasmids necessary for my research in a timely and efficient manner. A central plasmid depository is a great source for the scientific community.

    Dr. Jonathan Shillingford,
    University of California, Santa Barbara (Santa Barbara, CA)
  • I think that Addgene is an invaluable service to take the burden away from large labs who receive many requests for key plasmids The biggest benefit of Addgene for me is knowing that a certain plasmid will definitely arrive when requested.

    Dr. John Chilton,
    Peninsula Medical School (United Kingdom)
  • We were delighted with Addgene. From start to finish, everything worked beautifully and extremely efficiently. Thank you!

  • The plasmids provided by Addgene are very useful to us. They save a lot of time and money.

    Ran He,
    Shanghai Institute of Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Science (China)
  • [Addgene] has made fruitful collaborative work much more efficient than ever.

    Nate Goldstein,
    University of Colorado Health Sciences Center at Fitzsimons (Aurora, CO)
  • The availability of the plasmid through Addgene saved a lot of time and trouble. In short, they made it possible to continue an otherwise undoable project.
