The Schistosome Related Reagent Repository was launched by NIAID to serve as a central facility for the collection and long-term storage of schistosome and snail-host related reagents. This resource will allow scientists: 1) improved access to parasite, snail/mammal, and related reagents; and 2) availability of these standardized reagents in a renewable form. The purpose of this repository is to provide easy access to standardized and well-characterized material, generated by numerous investigators, towards a better understanding of the biology of the schistosome parasites and their intermediate snail and mammal hosts.
The Schistosome Related Reagent Repository contract provides life-cycle stages of several strains of the 3 medically important schistosomes- Schistosoma mansoni S. haematobium and S. japonicum. Types of schistosome and snail/mammal reagents maintained and distributed by the repository includes:
The Schistosome Resource Center was established by Biomedical Research Institute, Rockville, Maryland in 1995. In 2010, BEI Resources became the web-based storefront for ordering of these reagents. Distribution of schistosome parasites and their immediate hosts will continue from Biomedical Research Institute. Genomic DNA and Library materials will be distributed from BEI Resources in Manassas, VA.
