1 Commercial access (during peak business hours only) to WUCCI resources will only be granted after research use agreement is in place.
2 Peak time is defined as Mon – Fri 9am – 5pm, off-peak is at all other times and over the weekend.
3 Live-cell imaging per day rate is for 24 hours of use. If imaging moves into a second 24-hour period, the charges for the second period will be pro-rated to the percentage of the period used.
4 FIB-SEM imaging per day rate is for 24 hours of use. If imaging moves into a second 24-hour period, the charges for the second period will be pro-rated to the percentage of the period used.
5 There will be a minimum one-hour general labor charge for all EM preps to cover consultation.
