Requesting AMF from IBG



At present, we will provide inoculum of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi for scientific investigation only (non-commercial use!) from IBG cultures hosted at INRAE Dijon.  By decision of the BEG Scientific Committee held November 30, 2022, shipments are  limited to the European Union/EFTA/continental Europe/United Kingdom as of January 2023. Requests from other regions may only be honored in exceptional cases. These new regulations as well as fee increases (see below) have become necessary due to rising energy prices, shipment costs, and intricacy of necessary paperwork.


Pot cultures:

We impose a limit of three cultures per request

(a) small samples of pot culture substrate (50g) or (b) 30-100 spores in sterile water picked from pot cultures in an Eppendorf cup. We ask for a fee of EUR 120 f or (a) and 200 EUR for (b). We will check availability of the requested isolates and send you a form requesting your acceptance of the fee and the conditions for providing the inoculum.  Based on the information in the form we will send you an invoice after delivery.

The IBG declares that this inoculum contains spores (a, b) and other propagules (a) of the designated arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus. It is supplied with the proviso that it is for the user to initiate fresh cultures for scientific purposes only. It is not to be sold or exchanged with other entities without the agreement of either the donor or the BEG Committee. The material has been raised in pure open pot-culture but by the nature of this technique the substrate may be colonized by other (micro-)organisms. The IBG and donor, therefore, accept no responsibility for the contents other than the AM fungus within the substrate. You should always acknowledge the use of an IBG culture in any publication resulting from the work using the DOI https://doi.org/10.15454/4UVBRG. In completing and submitting the forms mentioned above you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.


In vitro cultures:

We provide  2 ml cup of spores and hyphae in a sterile agar medium. There is a limit of one culture per request.

We ask for a fee of EUR 200 per culture requested. We will check availability of the requested isolates and send you a form requesting your acceptance of the fee and the conditions for providing the inoculum.  Based on the information in the form we will send you an invoice after delivery.
