UK Biobank’s policy for the assay of depletable biological samples is that the sample should be efficiently turned into non-depletable data.

If you are submitting an application to request biological samples please ensure your application meets our Sample Release Policy, then complete and return a PMG103_B form to the Access Team via email.

UK Biobank are undertaking a full replacement of our infrastructure, which limits capacity to deliver samples for the next few years. After 2026, capacity should be significantly increased and the cost of sample supply will be reviewed. Projects requiring access to samples are individually costed once all the details are confirmed.
