The MCRC Biobank does not benefit financially from supplying samples to researchers, but does make a charge per sample to cover its costs. The pricing structure will be as follows:

1.         Commercial – TBC

2.         External Academic – Full price

3.         MCRC Members – 55% discount

4.         MCRC Contributing Members Tier 1 – 62.5% discount

5.         MCRC Contributing Members Tier 2 – 75% discount

Please note: rare or difficult to collect specimens incur additional collection costs and will be priced accordingly.

There is a fixed administration fee of £100 for research and QC/method development applications submitted to the Biobank, which is payable on submission.
