Customer Service provided by CHAIN

From the 1st December 2015 CHAIN Biotechnology have taken over the management of sales, distribution and support for the pMTL80000 series from the University of Nottingham where they were developed.1 Over the past five years, the pMTL80000 series has been widely adopted and have proven to represent a major breakthrough in terms of simplifying cloning strategies for the genetic manipulation of Clostridium species.
CHAIN is a newly established company embedded within the Synthetic Biology Research Centre (SBRC) at the University of Nottingham helping the Centre disseminate, translate and commercialise research outputs. CHAIN, together with researchers at the SBRC are making improvements to the pMTL80000 series set by adding novel features, functionalities and simplifying plasmid assembly.

CHAIN will contact you after 3 and 9 months following your kit order date to find out if there is anything we can do to assist you. In the meantime, we are keen to hear about your experiences using the plasmids in order to ensure that all future improvements are customer driven and meet your demands. The key contact at CHAIN is Ben Bradley (ben.bradley @
