Biobank Graz does not charge for the specimens themselves but only for the basic costs for processing, expendable materials, storage, retrieval, dispatch, personnel costs, etc. The price varies depending on expenditure and affiliation of the applicant.
- Med Uni Graz/University Hospital Graz researchers: The service charges are low since Biobank Graz is part of Med Uni Graz. For projects with funding (FWF, EU, ÖNB, etc.), applicants must only make a small contribution to cover the running costs of Biobank Graz.
- External academic institutions: The charges are somewhat higher than for internal projects. Since most projects are cooperative research with Med Uni Graz, the costs are nevertheless moderate. Cooperation should be encouraged so that both sides benefit.
- Industry projects/projects with companies: Commercial customers must bear the full costs, i.e., only here are the actual costs fully covered. Charges are made for running costs, personnel, time for data collection as well as investment and rental fees.
In any case, costs will be calculated individually depending on the desired services. For more information, please contact our Project Management Team.
