How to request samples at the Neuro-CEB Biobank?

For a sample request, please contact the engineer of the Neuro-CEB Biological Resource Center, Mme Sabrina Leclère, who will send you a request form, or download the form on this page (see below). Fill in the request form and the MTA. Send one version by e-mail and the original document by regular mail. Your sample request will be examined by the Neuro-CEB Biobank scientific committee. The response time is two weeks as a mean.

When using samples, you must be aware that being from human origin, they should be treated with special care.

The provided samples have been collected post mortem by the Neuro-CEB network. The patients have given their consent during their lifetime in a generous way to help scientific research in neurodegenerative diseases. The Neuro-CEB Biobank wants to guarantee the proper use of the samples. When using the samples, you must accept the following principles:

  • to respect the law concerning the use of human samples in research
  • to use the samples exclusively for the project that has been submitted in the request form
  • to use samples for scientific projects that are not directly commercial
  • to let the Neuro-CEB coordinator know when the project has ended
  • to complete the form sent by the Neuro-CEB brain bank concerning the progress of the project, the published papers and the assessment of the service quality
  • to mention the "Neuro-CEB network" in the authors of the paper when the collaboration has been significant, or in he acknowledgement when the collaboration has been limited.
