DNA samples and B-lymphoblastoid cell lines availability

________

You may order either DNA samples or matching human B-lymphoblastoid cell lines.

Note: Each DNA sample in our collection has a matching cell line. For example, you may first order a large set of DNA samples, and later order the desired matching cell lines from the same donors.

  • The price for each growing cell line is US $150 (excluding shipping charges).
  • The price for each 10 ug DNA sample is US $45 (excluding shipping charges).
  • The price for each 5 ug DNA sample is US $30 (excluding shipping charges).
     
  • Our DNA samples are sent in sterile distilled water at a concentration of ~500 ng/ul and are PCR-ready. 
  • Each 5 ug DNA sample is sufficient for approximately 50 to 100 PCR reactions. 
     
  • After receiving an order for cell lines one vial of each frozen cell line is thawed. 
  • The viability of the cells and lack of mycoplasma contamination is checked by our staff. 
  • B-cell lines are viable for at least one week at ambient temperatures, and are shipped as growing cultures (approximately 20 million cells).in a volume of 15 ml RPMI.
  • Shipment of frozen vials in dry-ice is not recommended due to possible delays by local customs.

  • To place an order, please print, complete and sign the order form and fax along with an
    Institutional Purchase Order to ++972-3-640-5168 or email a scanned PDF file to gurwitz@post.tau.ac.il
  • The original forms should be mailed to the address shown below.
  • Please include a short cover letter explaining the research project for which the DNA samples or cell lines will be used.

  • Minimal orders are US$ 500
  • Special discounts are available for orders exceeding US $5,000 (please inquire) 
  • Kindly contact us before placing an Institutional Purchase Order (contact details below), as some DNA samples could be temporarily out of stock.

  • Orders not accompanied by an Institutional Purchase Order will not be processed
  • Shipments are made with courier within 2 - 3 weeks of receiving your order.
  • Israeli customers: please note that there is no VAT

#  Distribution of some of the DNA samples and cell lines marked by # may require prior agreement of the researchers who donated the samples to our repository. Please check with us before placing an order for these samples. 

Some notes about our donors

        All donors are adult Israeli citizens (over 18 years old) and have given written informed consent for the study of their genetic material (DNA or cells) for biomedical research.

        Commercial use of samples is not allowed.

        Ethnicity is self-defined by the donors.

        For Jewish donors, it is defined according to the place of birth of their four grandparents. For example, Iraqi Jewish donors have four grandparents who were born in Iraq .

        Gender and age are available for all donors (with some exceptions for age).

        Height and weight and smoking status (smoker / non-smoker) are available for some donors.

Some examples for studies using our DNA samples or cell lines

A list of over 100 published studies using our DNA samples is available upon request
