In general, service requests will not be processed until a fully executed MTA has been received (where applicable) and either a billing address or a purchase order number has been provided by the customer. Therefore, please note that the delivery times given above represent the time period between the date when all paperwork is in place and the date of when the material is available for shipping at EMMA nodes.
EMMA screens and distributes mice in accordance with FELASA protocols and guarantees that mice leaving the EMMA institutions are free of pathogens as specified by FELASA.
Kind of material and delivery times
Deposited lines are distributed under the EMMA repository conditions. EMMA only acts as distributor and any already existing Material Transfer Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
The frozen material provided will be sufficient for two IVF or embryo transfer sessions. If live mice are ordered, EMMA will ship up to 3 heterozygous animals , males or females (wildtype littermates could be also available upon request) .
EMMA has newly submitted strains in various stages of preservation, development and colony establishment. These strains are not yet available for distribution or ordering and thus marked by a red traffic light symbol. However, you are invited to register your interest in any such strains by clicking on the EMMA strain list, finding your strain of interest, opening the strain details by using the ‘+’ toggle, then clicking the ‘Register interest’ button.
Comparison of distortion gradient and strain gradient based elasticity theories.
Applicability of Mindlin rule for double and triple stresses.
Higher order strain and stress tensors encompassed within gradient elasticity theories are discussed with a particular concern to the physical meaning of double and triple stresses. A single rule is shown to hold for the physical interpretation of the indices of a higher order stress tensor both within distortion gradient and strain gradient theories, whereas the analogous Mindlin’s rule holds only within distortion gradient theories. Double and triple stresses are discussed separately with the aid of simple illustrative examples. A corrigendum to a previous paper by the author (IJSS 50 (2013) 3749–3765) is also presented.
Once the order has been received, the BMCC will contact the applicant to specify the use conditions of the service and to send a budget.
The order for a strain is made through the request form, which is found after the service description. Once the form is completed, it must be sent to the BMCC.
In addition, there is available the MTA document necessary for the material transference.
