How much do samples cost?
To promote partnerships between BCRs and sample requesters, as well as transparency, BIOBANQUES implemented a tarification grid to evaluate cost. This grid is based on objective international criteria and offers 3 billing levels corresponding to 3 levels of partnerships.
How does it take to receive my samples?
Following reception and validation of your request form, BIOBANQUES sends it to its network. Response times from BRCs can vary. We however closely follow up with centers of our network (phone, email, request at European level if necessary) in the following month to ensure that you promptly receive your samples for your research project.
