Part IV: Permit Status

Part V: Strain Prices

The cost of shipping has dramatically increased in the last few years with the need for special packaging and the need to use couriers for shipment. Therefore it has been necessary to increase the cost of each shipment, but we have tried to counteract this effect by decreasing our per strain charge. Strains are also provided at a reduced rate to researchers at non-profit research establishments and universities and free of charge to researchers who have provided strains to the SGSC in the past.

The following shipment charges apply for researchers making strain requests for (all prices are in Canadian dollars and include shipping costs):

Academic or non-profit agencies: $80.00 for the first strain and $10.00 for each additional strain within the same shipment.

Private or for-profit agencies: $160.00 for the first strain and $20.00 for each additional strain within the same shipment.

Please Note: After you press the "Submit" button above - it will change to a darker colour when pressed - you will

We will respond to confirm your request as promptly as possible.
