How to Obtain Services

1. All users are encouraged to email to discuss the scope of the project, available services, desired deliverables, and service rates.

2. A valid 10-digit grant number (Wistar users only) or PO# (all external users) must be provided prior to the initiation of services.

3. First-time external users are required to provide their business administrator’s name, address, telephone number, fax number, and email address.

4. DNA plasmids, bacterial stocks, cell pellets, or virus stocks can be shipped or brought directly to the Facility.

Due to construction and building renovations at the Wistar Institute, the Protein Expression Facility has been relocated to the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School, Rosenthal Building (corner of 38th and Spruce street) Rooms 426-430.  

When you enter the doors off Spruce street, you will need to sign in with the receptionist.  After you enter the double doors, you will approach a stairwell and elevator on the right hand side.  Take to fourth floor.  When you come out of the stairwell/elevator, turn right.  We are the second door on the right.
