|  Prepayment of distribution fees (overseas organizations only)

 The RIKEN BioResource Center 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 Tuesday December 1, 2015 (Japan standard time).

For each unit price, please see the following website:
