Terms and conditions

Types of service workflows:

Expression & purification services alone:

If client provides the construct containing insert for expression & purification services only, all information including the sequence of insert/s, details on the construct/vector /s etc should be provided by the client. As it is mandatory to check for purity and yield irrespective of the available data, facility will perform the following: DNA sequencing confirmation of insert, expression, solubility, purity and yield check, before further large scale expression and purification.

Purification services alone:

If the client requires purification only, all details requested and information such as, source, natural or recombinant and in case of recombinant - nucleic acid and amino acid sequence of the insert, details of purification tag/s etc should be provided by the client.

Deliverables and Payment terms:

Results obtained at checkpoints shall be shared with the client. Deliverables (e.g. Constructs, strains etc) will be provided to the client upon request and upon achievement of checkpoints. If not requested during the service, deliverables shall be provided at the conclusion of the service.

Multiple quotations and/or proforma invoices may be given to the client during the course of the service (dependent on requirements of client and agreed payment schedule); however a single invoice will be raised for the complete service for payment by the client.

Vector/strain (/s) used and provided by facility:

For commercial/non-academic entities – Vectors/strains used for protein production by the facility shall not be provided to the client. Deliverables would only include the protein. In the event that the constructs/strains are a requirement the vectors/strains shall be provided by the client only.

For academic/research institutions - Vectors and strains provided by the facility can be used ONLY for research purposes and cannot be shared with third parties. It can only be used to express the protein that was cloned by the facility. If the system is used for filing IP or for commercial activities, the institution and investigator are responsible for getting the appropriate permission(s) from the company with the proprietary rights on the vectors/strains used. If any infringement of this notice occurs, the facility shall not be held responsible for forthcoming arbitrations.


Publications & Acknowledgments:

In the event that results from the service provided are to be published, depending on the intellectual input provided by C-CAMP Protein facility, authorship can be discussed. In any event regardless of authorship, the Protein facility must be acknowledged in any publication of results from the service.

Please note: The facility through its expertise and experience will assure the best of services as requested.

In some cases, due to the unpredictability of proteins, variance and their functional behavior, it may not be possible to obtain functionally active protein.

For activity studies, client may approach facility head for discussion on feasibility. This will be a separate custom service request.

Appropriate internal positive controls will be used to assure the genomic integration of the gene in the P. pastoris genome as well as for expression.

In case of service failures due to unforeseen reasons (e.g. no expression observed, unable to purify etc), client will still be invoiced for the services rendered.

Samples, if any, remaining after the completion of a project will be stored upto a period of Three months. Protein Technology Facility reserves the right to dispose the unclaimed samples after the Three month period, unless discussed beforehand (on case-to-case basis).
