Abstract

Scientific cooperation between laboratories in the United States is no longer confined to those at the same institution, nor even within the boundaries of the country. More than ever, scientists are forming collaborations with their peers outside the U.S., leading not only to the exchange of knowledge and ideas, but also to the exchange of biological reagents. This unit discusses issues involved with international transfer of these reagents, such as packaging and import restrictions.
