 The following aspects should be taken into account as part of the "Sample request":

Once a request is received, we will send you an acknowledgement of receipt. If this does not arrive, contact . We will contact you again as soon as possible to inform you of the steps to follow, date of the request decision, etc.

 If you are considering requesting funding or are preparing and examining the viability of a research project, we recommend that you contact us initially so that we can inform you of the availability of the samples you require and provide you with a provisional estimate of the cost of these samples. If you intend to request funding from a research agency, the Basque Biobank can prepare a document confirming the existence of these samples. However, provision of these samples will depend exclusively on the approval of your request by the Basque Biobank's Ethical and Scientific Committees.

Once your sample request has been approved, a sample transfer agreement, which we will send to you beforehand, must be signed between the Basque Biobank and the applicant body.

Samples for research purposes are free and only the cost of their collection, processing and storage must be met. See prices.
