Equipment use and costs

IMBM Equipment specifications, availability and costs:

The IMBM laboratory is well equipped and we would like to make the equipment available to the broader research community. There is a cost associated with operating and maintaining equipment so we do charge a fee for use of equipment (see below). IMBM projects are prioritized, in terms of scheduling, as the equipment is primarily there to serve our students. A form which helps us track who is using the equipment and that their supervisor is aware of them using our equipment is provided below.

We do not provide the equipment as a service, and will not be held responsible for failed experiments. The equipment is provided with training to enable outside researchers to perform their experiments and analysis using equipment they do not have available in their own laboratories, and to receive training and become competent in the use of the equipment.
