User Fees

The facility is a non-profit research resource. All projects entail operation fees to recover costs associated with staff time, routine maintenance, replenishment of expendable supplies, and service contracts. Fees will be waived if problems develop as the result of equipment failure, but not for problems resulting from sample quality, quantity, or outside operator error. Users must have a valid university account number and a prior billing agreement in place before the onset of service-related activities.

For billing information, please contact Deborah Bendschneider or Catherine Amico.
