Service cost list (Version 12.2016)

In order to partially contribute to Biobanks’ sustainability, sample distribution services are subject to cost-recovery (for more information see The Charter, point 6.2).

TNGB applies the following different cost lists depending on researcher’s organisation:

  • Cost list for researchers working for academic/public institution or non-profit organisations
  • Cost list for researchers working for for-profit organisations

Detailed below are the updated version of the cost lists of the Telethon Network of Genetic Biobanks (for more information see Instructions).

Please note that all costs do not include VAT or local taxes (e.g. stamp duty). The total cost of the requested services will be detailed in the MTA which will be sent by the Biobank to the Researcher, once the sample request has been approved.
