provide a large number of BAC, PAC, fosmid and cDNA clone
libraries arrayed into 384 or 96 well plates.
- We do
not normally maintain an inventory of extra library copies.
Library copies will be rarely be made, and require advance
planning. This is necessary in view of the logistics and
also to avoid repeated freezing/thawing of the "master"
copy of the library. In addition, many of the master copies
are stored at a remote location, far away from our Oakland
site. This requires a 360 miles round trip by car
to retrieve the master copy. Due to the freezer space considerations,
we cannot not guarantee that arrayed copies will be available
in a short period [or at all], but may be prepared to commit
to specific requests with a quote carrying an expiration
date. Please read our library
sharing policy for information on the logistics of arrayed
- Some libraries
may never become available as library copies. Libraries
with an "RP" or "RPCI" name are unavailable
to commercial users (with the exception of RPCI-24, also
named "RP24") unless a Materials Transfer Agreement
has been established with Roswell Park Cancer Institute
through the current Director of Technology Transfer.
- All other
libraries are available to commercial users, but require
a licensing agreement. This agreement may differ depending
on the specific requirements established by the institution
where the library was created and also be influenced by
the specific applications considered. Requests for commercial
library MTAs should be emailed to Suzanne
Haendel and carbon-copied to Pieter
de Jong and bacpacorders.

Complete libraries or defined library
segments may be available for academic customers by reimbursement
of duplication costs (labor and materials) and reflecting
the costs of longterm library storage at our site. Information
on availability and costs may be obtained by contacting Pieter
de Jong. If available, then copies are usually only distributed
per complete library or per defined segment (as posted on
library-specific web pages).
