Prior to project initiation, a meeting is required with CBC staff to discuss each project. If mutually agreed that the CBC can support the project, we will deliver a quote outlining the approach, timeline, and cost for the agreed service(s). As this is cutting-edge science, we cannot guarantee success, in all cases the user will be billed for cost and labor for CBC effort per our fee structure. After acceptance of the quote, the user will fill out and return the sample submission form provided with the quote, and also found on each CBC facility’s website. All samples are assumed to be safe, and no greater than BSL1, unless otherwise agreed upon in advance. The user must diligently and transparently followed all University of Illinois sample acquisition, movement, and safety protocols.

This is an abridged list of our service prices and subject to change at any time; please contact Dr. Mark Band, Director of Functional Genomics, at (217) 244-3930 or for information on prices and other issues related to your project.

Facility users other than State of Illinois institutions are subject to a 31.9% indirect cost rate for federally funded projects . State of Illinois non-Federally funded projects are subject to a 10% indirect cost rate.  Off-campus projects require an off-campus user form, to be provided by the facility, and if over $10,000 a technical testing agreement. For further information contact Dr. Mark A. Mikel (217-244-0144; ), Associate Director of the Roy J. Carver Biotechnology Center.


All scientific work performed by the Roy J. Carver Biotechnology Center (CBC) is required to be acknowledged in scholarly publications, posters, and presentations.  Proper recognition allows us to measure the impact of our work and supports our initiatives in obtaining sponsored funding. In addition, any CBC personnel who make a substantial intellectual or experimental contribution are deserving of further recognition as co-author.
