Administrative Handling Charge

All successful applications for biosamples (apart from pilot projects and sub-collection access, see here) will incur an administrative handling fee to cover: 


   - approvals and licences

   - consenting process

   - staff time

   - storage of samples and data

   - processing the application

   - arranging the review process

   - collating the required samples and prepare for shipping/transfer


If research groups requesting samples are actively involved in one or more operational tasks (eg. taking consent) required to source biosamples, the fee will be reduced to reflect that input.

This charge will depend upon the number of samples requested:

101-250 £350
