Agreements

Researchers requesting services from the NSW Health Statewide Biobank (NSWHSB) must complete an Application Form (Deposits).

A Standard Agreement is required to facilitate the relationship between the requesting research organisation and the NSWHSB. The agreement outlines the services provided, responsibilities of each party and service costs.

Research organisations seeking access to biospecimens and/or associated data from the NSWHSB must complete an Application Form (Withdrawals).

If the custodian approves usage and the biospecimens are available, the NSWHSB will work with the custodian to manage access to the samples. In cases where the NSWHSB supports the custodianship, the NSWHSB will work with the Research Governance Office (RGO) or equivalent, to prepare a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA).

The MTA and Standard Agreement must be signed by the delegated authority nominated by each institution. Once the MTA and Standard Agreement has been executed the transfer of the samples will be coordinated by the NSWHSB.
