Announcement
Revision of the Distribution Fees for the Bioresources.
  The RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC) is a non-profit institution funded by the Japanese Government. We are engaged in collecting, maintaining, multiplying, storing and distributing bioresources, in order to support research and development in the field of life sciences. The RIKEN BRC has been providing bioresources not only to scientists in Japan but also to those in overseas with minimum fees solely to reimburse the RIKEN BRC for a part of the preparation and handling costs of the requested bioresources. Due to release of new bioresources and changes in circumstances, it has become necessary to revise the distribution fees.
We sincerely hope that these revisions will not trouble our customers.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
We are looking forward to receiving your requests for our bioresources.
The revised distribution fees are applied to all orders for the bioresources after March 6, 2008, 08:00 (GMT).
