Cell analyzer charges are for time booked or time used, whichever is greater. We charge a minimum of 1/2 hour and increments of 15 minutes thereafter.
Cell sorter charges also are for time booked or time used, whichever is greater. The minimum time charged for a sort is 1.5 hours.
If you need to cancel, please do so as early as possible. We reserve the right to charge for sorts cancelled less than three days before the appointment and analyses cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
No-shows will be charged for the time scheduled.
All PI's requesting cell sorting projects must submit a Cell Sorting Biosafety Questionnaire before scheduling a sort.
