How to deposit strains with NCPV

The process for depositing virus cultures is relatively simple and requires a dialogue between the depositor and NCPV. This is essential to ensure that relevant biosafety and culture information is captured. The system is deliberately flexible in order for NCPV and end users to meet depositor requirements.
