IMPORTANT INFORMATION
 
      *  Each cycle is from January-December. Labs are allowed to register anytime during the cycle paying full registration which will be valid only till the end of the cycle.

Partial refunding will be made based on the number of samples already sent. No cancellation or refunding is possible after the month of May.
