Cost Recovery Fee

Biobank Ireland charges a small fee to contribute towards recovering incurred costs in the hospital biobanks. This fee is made up of several components, including an administrative fee and the cost of collection, storage and retrieval of samples for projects. For samples in the database and on the web portal an additional sample release fee applies. All shipping costs will be the responsibility of the receiving researcher/group. Please contact BIT to confirm final costs or to cost a bespoke or prospective collection, where that is feasible.
