Biospecimen Prices

The following price list is provided for information and planning purposes.

Please be aware that, due to economic and geopolitical factors outside of our control, prices for shipment of biological samples from our designated biorepository at Sampled have recently increased and may fluctuate in the future. International laboratories, and those farther away from the US East Coast, may experience higher shipping costs at this time. Researchers may be able to avoid some of this extra cost by utilizing your own courier (UPS, FedEx, DHL, World Courier, Marken, Cryoport, and QuickStart) through your institution.

Transactions for the purchases of samples are handled directly by Sampled.

Information about how to request biospecimens is available here.
