A material transfer contract (MTA) is a contract that governs the transfer of research material between two organizations when the recipient intends to use it for his or her own research purposes. The MTA defines the rights of the supplier and the rights and obligations of the recipient with respect to materials and all offspring, derivatives or modifications. Biological materials such as reagents, cell lines, plasmids and vectors are the most frequently transferred materials, but MTAs can also be used for other types of materials such as chemical compounds, mouse models and even certain types of software. Three types of MTAs are most common in academic institutions: transfer between academic or research institutions, transfer of science to industry, and transfer from industry to science. Everyone demands different conditions.  Legal Service at: Tel. `49 89 3187-2833E-Mail: material-transfer[`]helmholtz-muenchen.de 3. Please send an email in advance with the full order form (annex) by clicking “SEND” at the end of the last page or by clicking directly on the PDF file directly at material-transfer[`helmholtz-muenchen.de. This speeds up the release of requested material as soon as the SMTA signed by mail. For simple transfers without intellectual property, the NIH recommends a simple matching agreement. For materials that can be patented or for which increased protection is desired, the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA) can be used. Many U.S. educational institutions have signed the UBMTA Masteragrement.
 AUTM (formerly the Association of University Technology Managers) serves as a repository for UBMTA`s original master`s contracts and keeps the list of signatories.  UBMTA signatories must only sign a letter of execution containing the details of each transfer, since they have already agreed to all the terms of the master contract. for international contractors: law and jurisdiction d. If your request for equipment includes the TET system, please contact the following questions, regardless of the type of equipment involved: If one receives a request for material at Julius Maximilians University in Wurzburg, it is necessary to check, among other things, whether he has the right to use the equipment, as he has the equipment himself .B a third party with a person responsible for the damage. resulting from the use of the material? Addgene is a non-profit plasmid bank, through which plasmids from the scientific community can be accessed to simple art. In order to make it easy for researchers to deposition plasmids, the universities of Basel, Bern and Zurich have a Master Deposit Agreement with Addgene. The distribution of plasmids by additives in general under an UBMTA, unless the use of the corresponding plasmid is subject to specific restrictions.
