Information of Request for Distribution

Prepayment of distribution fees
(overseas organizations only)

The RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC) is a non-profit institution funded by the Japanese Government. We have been engaging in collection, preservation and distribution of bioresources, with the aim to support research and development in the field of life sciences. We provide bioresources to scientists not only in Japan but also throughout the world with minimum fees that is solely reimburse for preparation and handling costs of the requested bioresources. To continue the smooth distribution of bioresources for overseas organizations, it has become necessary to send bioresources prepaid.

We sincerely hope that this change will not cause any inconvenience our users. We very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation, and are looking forward to receiving your requests for our bioresources.

The prepayment of distribution fees for overseas organizations will apply to all orders for bioresources from Monday December 7, 2015 (Japan standard time).
