Rates (ISU)

In general, instrument usage is charged by the hour and is based upon student operation with no more than 15 minutes of staff support per hour of student use.  The minimum billable amount per session is one hour.  The Shimadzu LCMS2020 is billed per "injection-use". For the prep-LC, solvent and column-use charges are extra costs.
