The CRBIP  (Biological Resource Center of Institut Pasteur) holds collections of biological materials and the information associated with them.

A number of controls are performed to ensure the compliance of the biological material with the properties described by the applicant. This information is grouped in a database (BRC LIMS software) and in a web catalog covering each collection.
