The collections of "Institut Pasteur"

CRBIP: The Biological Resource Center of Institut Pasteur

The CRBIP preserves collections of biological strains and the information linked to them. A certain number of controls are performed to assure the similarity of the strains with their characteristics (patent rights) coming from the depositor. This information is gathered in a computer database (ARPAS software) and a catalogue which makes easy access of these biological resources for customers and researchers, and maintains an availability and durability for a future use.

CRBIP delivers its biological strains in France and abroad according to the regulations and laws in force on health and environment, so preserving a strong visibility.

Besides, CRBIP is permanently growing by inserting new collections and by diversifying the existing ones. Therefore, more and more new strains are becoming available.

Moreover, CRBIP participates in the opening of an international network of BRCs
