The Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank aims to recover some of the costs for supplying samples to the research community. If you are a Breast Cancer Now funded researcher you do not have to pay any costs recovery for samples. Courier costs may still apply.
Academic institutes get a 33% discount on the cost recovery fee for samples. Profit making organisations will be charged full cost recovery plus an overhead for staff time/management of the Bank.
