Toxins

A toxin is a poisonous substance produced by living cells or an organism. Toxins are often very potent and selective at their targets and these properties can make them valuable research tools.

The toxins below are defined as 'dual use' items. To purchase such items customers will need to supply the relevant licence and documentation from the appropriate governing body. Please visit our Toxins customer support page for further information and assistance.
