The HHV-6 Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the research of HHV-6A, HHV-6B and HHV-7 viruses. We maintain a repository of rare and valuable reagents available free of charge to non-profit institutions and accept donations from for-profit companies that would like to receive our materials. A processing fee is charged for each request and we require a shipping account number (preferably FEDEX) prior to shipment.

To place an order, please send a description of your research and your request for reagents to the HHV-6 Foundation repository manager Jill Chase. Thank you!
