All users are billed in 15-minute increments. For samples run by the operator, the investigators are charged for the data analysis time at the same rate of indicated above. The operator is not responsible for preparing samples, figures for presentation and publications. The Kaluza software v1.2 is available at a separate workstation in R607, and can be used free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.

User fees are reviewed annually and subject to changes.

Scheduling and cancellation

It is necessary to make your appointment at least one day in advance for the Gallios analyzer and three days in advance for the MoFlo sorter. Scheduling is on a first-come, first-served basis. Users are charged from the beginning of their reservation time. For the MoFlo XDP, users are charged a minimum of one hour for instrument set up and alignment in addition to their actual sorting time.

In order to prevent scheduling conflicts and maximize the use of the instruments we require cancellation notification 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. If we do not receive 24-hour cancellation notification for the Gallios analyzer and/or the MoFlo XDP sorter, the full time of the appointment will be charged.

Hours of operation

  • 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, excluding UMMC holidays.
