Important tips on the NIH HIV Reagent Program Reagent Requests:

1. Please be advised that the NIH HIV Reagent Program distributes reference/research amounts of all our reagents. In order to ensure availability to all qualified researchers, it is our policy to only provide research quantities of a given reagent per year to each registered user.


2. Item availability is subject to change due to limited supply, production costs, withdrawal, regulatory restrictions or other events. Some NIH HIV Reagent Program reagents are not amplifiable and limited to our repository stock on hand. The NIH HIV Reagent Program websites list the most current reagent holdings.


3. Please remember the essential program requirement to acknowledge both the NIH HIV Reagent Program and the Depositor of the Reagent(s), as indicated on the Reagent Product Sheet in all publications and presentations resulting from your use of the reagents, whether the reagents are used as standards, controls or modified derivatives. The suggested format for such acknowledgement can be found on each item's catalog detail page.  (See How to Cite)
