Select toxins and due diligence
For any transfer of select toxins in any amount to any intra- or extramural entity or individual requires documentation of due diligence.
Regulated select toxins include:
- Botulinum neurotoxins
- Short, paralytic alpha conotoxins
- Diacetoxyscirpenol (DAS)
- Staphylococcal enterotoxins (subtypes A, B, C, D, and E)
- T2 toxin
You must enroll in the UW Select Agent Program and obtain approval for work with select toxins at or above the permissible amounts. Email email@example.com to find out if you need to enroll.
If you plan to transfer any of the above toxins, complete the UW Select Toxin Transfer Due Diligence Form and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to transfer.
The Principal Investigator sending the toxin is responsible for documenting due diligence and maintaining records for three years. The Federal Select Agent Program’s Due Diligence Frequently Asked Questions has more information.
