* Fee determined to be a fair market value relative to equivalent service charges by private companies. (See NSF Grant Policy Manual).  CMU incubator companies, that have prior training, are charged using 15min intervals.

 

Normal rates apply to samples which have been prepared by the guidelines given on our Mass Spectrometry page.  If significant preparation remains to be done upon submission, the "Additional Sample Preparation" charge will be assessed, since the service will take significantly more time to complete.

 Users will be charge for the formal two hour training session.
