Revision of Distribution Fees for Bioresources in RIKEN BRC

The RIKEN BioResource Research Center (BRC) is a non-profit institution and only requires users to pay the minimum costs for the actual preparation and handling of resources.

Due to the rising costs of labor and raw materials, we have decided to revise our distribution fees. In addition, we would like to announce that we will no longer be able to provide the "Set of individual plant DNA" and "Arabidopsis DNABook™" belonging to the Experimental Plant, due to changing research needs.

The revised distribution fees will apply to all orders for bioresources from Saturday, April 1, 2023.

We deeply appreciate your understanding and cooperation, and we look forward to receiving your requests for bioresources.

Best Regards,
Director, Toshihiko Shiroishi, Ph.D.
RIKEN BioResource Research Center
