Cost of biosamples
- Pulling vials for shipment (includes liquid in vials as well as other material, e.g. tissue): $2.91/sample
- Pulling and aliquoting vials for shipment: $4.80/sample
Requesting investigators will provide a shipper account number (e.g. FedEx or UPS) so that the repository can bill the shipment using their institutional rates.
Cost of genetic samples
Option 1 - Custom nucleic acid distribution
Investigators request specific DNA yields, concentrations, volumes, sample organization, and sample container for their distribution.
Option 2 - Fixed volume and concentration
DNA will be provided at a fixed concentration of 100ng/ul in a fixed volume of 20 ul or 50 ul (a yield of 2 or 5 ug per sample) with no specific order of samples requested. The requestor may choose the size from among the two standard options.
Option 3 - Fixed volume at stock concentration
DNA will be provided at a fixed volume of 20ul of stock DNA (with varied concentrations) in a fixed sample format with no specific order of samples requested.
All prices include shipping cost.
It is the policy set forth by NIDDK that full payment be received prior to shipment of samples on invoices exceeding $5000.00 and all international orders. A purchase order should be attached to requests as required by the requesting institution. Requestors should confirm local payment policy as needed. Central Repository staff will provide a cost estimate after submission so that purchase orders can be created.
Payments must be made in USD only. Payment must be made via check after an invoice is received. Credit cards are not accepted.
A W9 form for the repository's designated payee is available upon request. To obtain the form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
