How to Request Samples

Process to request samples

OVCVB samples are available to both academic and industry cancer researchers. Request for samples is a multi-step process, and researchers can expect to have samples within approximately 8-12 weeks from time of initial inquiry.

  1. Submit a completed questionnaire with your request here to be contacted regarding availability of samples.
  2. Internal review of the request will take place, followed by a request for more information from the researcher.
  3. If the request is approved, we will provide you with a Material Transfer Agreement outlining the details of the request along with an itemized estimate for the samples and accompanying data.
  4. Following the transfer of funds, samples are shipped to the researcher and de-identified clinical data are sent electronically.

Access Fees

Fees range depending on sample type. For more information, please contact the Veterinary Biobank Coordinator, Deirdre Stuart or email the general mailbox. Please note prices will not be provided prior to the application process.
