To deliver better services and outcomes, NSW Health Pathology has developed a standardised approach to pricing pathology services for external research, across all NSW.
Our pricing model provides indicative pricing for NSW Health Pathology services to non-NSW Health Pathology research. The pricing is broken down into:
- Non-commercial research – avoidable cost recovery
- Commercial research – full cost recovery for all activity surrounding the service.
In cases where NSW Health Pathology is a collaborating partner, or NSW Health Pathology employees are involved as an investigator in a research project, NSW Health Pathology views this as a research collaboration, not services for research.
For research collaborations, a NSW Health Pathology investigator must be added to the research ethics application (through REGIS) listing the site as NSW Health Pathology. This will create a site-specific assessment form for NSW Health Pathology’s research governance office. For further information, visit our Research Governance page.
