What costs are associated with withdrawing samples from the Nebraska Biobank?

Samples in the Nebraska Biobank are processed after the 120 hour laboratory hold has passed.  Samples whether whole blood (EDTA), serum (Gold top), or plasma (Lithium Heparin) are held at 4° C during this "hold" period before being aliquoted and placed in long-term storage at -80° C.
