Unitectra either creates an MTA for you or reviews a contract that must be signed by the recipient of the material. We also provide an example of MTA for the transfer of materials to other academic groups. This sampling agreement is suitable for biological materials. We are happy to provide you with a custom agreement for other types of equipment or for animals. in a letter of implementation separate from this agreement or other agreement with conditions consistent with the terms of this agreement, to other scientists (at least scientists wishing to replicate scientists` research); provided that these other scientists reimburse the ISP for all costs associated with the preparation and distribution of MATERIAL. The purpose of this letter is to establish a registration of the transfer of biological materials, to corroborate the agreement between the supplier SCIENTIST (identified below) and the RECIPIENT SCIENTIST (below), to comply with all the conditions of the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA`) of 8 March 1995 and to confirm that the RECIPIENT organisation (identified below) has accepted and signed an unchanged copy of the UTA. The recipient plenipotentiary will also sign this letter if the CIPIENT SCIENTIST is not authorized to certify on behalf of the RECIPIENT organization. THE RECIPIENT SCIENTIST (and, if applicable, THE agent of RECIPIENT) should sign both copies of this letter and return a signed copy to the supplier. PROVIDER SCIENTIST transmits the material to RECIPIENT SCIENTIST after receiving the signed copy. Twenty years ago, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published a paper to be published in the technology transfer community. Following in-depth reflection and feedback from various universities, law firms and other public bodies, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) concluded the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA).
1 UBMTA was originally drafted with the aim of becoming the standard document for all academic transfers of research materials. 2 Prior to UBMTA, the exchange of research materials between academic organizations with non-standardized equipment transfer agreements (MTAs) for university technology transfer offices (TTOs) became increasingly arduous and unnecessarily time-consuming. With these delays, scientific research has sometimes been stalled or even permanently put on hold as a result of MTA negotiations. The NIH took these concerns into account when completing the UBMTA.
