User Fees

The Elemental Analysis Facility has a priority to support EHSC members and also to support the greater U of R research community. Such users must have a valid university account number and a prior billing agreement in place before initiation of service-related activities. Additional service to researchers from academic and research and development lab settings outside of U of R are possible and inquiries should be directed to the Facility Director. Outside investigators must demonstrate resources to cover anticipated fees prior to commencing any analyses.
