Manchester Brain Bank tariff
In line with a sustainable future for brain banking, the Medical Research Council and associated charities have introduced a cost recovery scheme for the provision of tissue.
The tariff has been standardised and is being implemented across the UK Brain Bank Network, of which Manchester Brain Bank is a member.
