  1. Collection of resource provision fees

  2. In order to ensure the stable supply of bioresources and the continuous operation of the project, NBRP has requested that all users pay the appropriate amount, based on the principle of beneficiary payment. Collection started in the fiscal year 2010. Since April 1st, 2017, with the 4th NBRP at the Amphibian Research Center at Hiroshima University, we have collected fees for miscellaneous expenses (including preparation of resources, packaging, etc.) in addition to shipping fees collected previously. The revenue will contribute to the stable supply of resources and quality improvement, that would ultimately benefit users. We appreciate your understanding.

This price revision is not currently reflected in the Web ordering system. Please note that when you order using the Web ordering system, the actual billing amount differs from the billing amount displayed by the system. Price update on the system will be completed soon.

2︎⃣ Shipping fees (Users in Japan should return the empty Styrofoam box by post, cash on delivery).

Users used to pay shipping costs (both shipping and returning a Styrofoam box) directly to the transport company, such as a post office or Yamato Transport. Currently, users in Japan pay for resources and shipping to Hiroshima University in a lumpsum, as an improvement on the payment method. We have received the following amount as a shipping fee including handling and packaging expenses, shown below. When filling out the order form, please choose [Yu-Pack] or [Yamato Transport]. As for shipping to Hokkaido and Okinawa areas, only Yu- Pack is available, due to air transport. We then send the shipping label (postage cash on delivery) from the transport company that you have chosen, along with the Styrofoam box. Please use it when returning the empty Styrofoam box to us.
