A Material Transfer Agreement (MTA):
MTA is a contract governing the transfer of a tangible material from a provider to a recipient. Examples of tangible materials are plant or microbial cultures, monoclonal antibodies, plasmids, nucleotides, proteins and chemicals. It is important to have a MTA in place before materials are sent to a recipient or accepted from a provider. The purpose of an MTA is to avoid misunderstanding between the parties and to protect the interests of both parties.
