To obtain an EUTCD-Grade cell line follow the steps in our application process
. The relevant forms to apply can be found on our application form
The EUTCD-Grade cell lines undergo a process known as Due Diligence
to ensure they meet the requirements of the EU Tissue and Cell Directives (under HTA direction) before they are accepted for banking and distribution for human application. The EUTCD-Grade cell lines have been derived from embryos under the informed consent requirements of the UK Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) and have been reviewed by an independent UK Steering Committee
To avoid delays, requestors are advised to review all necessary legal agreements
while their application is being considered by the UK Steering Committee. For release of an EUTCD-Grade cell line, a signed Material Access Agreement
(MAA) and Material Use Licence (MUL), alongside UK Steering committee approval, is required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information on the application process and relevant legal contacts for acquiring an MAA and MUL.
