Sample Shipment

When the project has been initiated, the samples can be sent to the following address:

Finnish Functional Genomics Centre
Turku Centre for Biotechnology
Tykistökatu 6 A, Biocity, 5th floor
FIN-20520 Turku, Finland

Please send us with the samples:

The filled sample submission form (please send this also electronically)


The samples should be sent well packed with enough dry ice using the courier of your choice. Usually it’s safer to send samples in the beginning of the week, especially when shipping from abroad.

Please inform us when you have shipped your samples so we know to expect them: ffgc (at) You can also attach you delivery tracking code if available.
