User Fees as of July 31, 2016


User Fees help ensure that the BioFrontiers Advanced Light Microscopy Core can continue to provide you with access to fully functional state-of-the-art imaging technologies that will help facilitate the success of your research.

All Training and Consultation (Assisted Session) requests will be promptly responded to, but remain dependent upon the availability of the Director.

Users will be charged for the entire duration of their registered time, and individual sessions cannot be canceled within 24 hours of the start of the scheduled time.

Prices also depend upon whether you are part of an academic, government, or commercial entity.  If you are interested in the facility director operating the microscope (an Assisted Session) the cost is $60.00 per hour for academic/government entities, and $90.00 per hour for commercial entities.  If significant intellectual contributions are provided authorship should be discussed.
