New NTUF Rates Announced Aug. 29th, 2013:

New per hour tool and staff assistance rates (please see the table below) will be applied in the NTUF lab effective January 1st, 2014.

Please see the NTUF inventory.

You will notice a slight increase in the rates for the Group I tools including SEM, XRD and the new FIB. The TEM (Group II) rate will decrease for non-academic users and for all "other tools" of Group III the industrial rate will increase, to maintain roughly the same ratio of industrial to academic rates in all categories. The rates in Groups I and II take into account the estimated service expenses. All external rates include the overhead. Please notice an increase in the staff assistance rates. Though Biacore SPR remains on our inventory list, it is now operated by John Sumida at the Analytical Biopharmacy Core, which is located next to NTUF in the MolES basement (the rate is the same as in the first group of tools).
