NHGRI Sample Repository Cell Line Pricing Policy 

The fee for a T25 flask of cells is $85. When an order for a large number of cell cultures is placed at one time, the fee for each of the first 250 cultures is $85 and the fee for each additional culture is $25. Purchasers may arrange to take delivery on these cultures on several different dates. The Repository is designed to provide only seed cultures and will not provide more than one flask of each culture requested per order.  See ordering instructions for more information.

NHGRI Sample Repository Pricing Policy for Scientists from Developing Countries

(Effective Date: 1 July 2008) 

The NHGRI Sample Repository for Human Genetic Research provides DNA samples and cell lines that are used to help scientists understand human biology, health and disease. Samples are stored and distributed by the non-profit Coriell Institute for Medical Research.

The value of these samples can be fully realized only when the cost of access is reasonable. Therefore, in order to facilitate the use of these samples by scientists from developing countries, the National Human Genome Research Institute/National Institutes of Health (NHGRI/NIH) will allow scientists from countries listed in bands 1 and 2 of the World Health Organization's Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative (HINARI) to purchase DNA samples and cell lines at a reduced rate of 25% (a 75% discount) of the catalog price. NHGRI will also consider requests from scientists in other countries or institutions that are not on the HINARI list, but who can justify the need for a reduced-cost purchase.
