If your lab uses our microscopes more than 17 hours per year, do the math. Subscription is a terrific deal! Typical microscope sessions are ~3 hours each, and subscribers have free access to computer workstation with sophisticated image processing software. After a handful of sessions (don't forget that you have to do the controls and replicates!), you'll quickly save hundreds or thousands of dollars a year with subscription.

To ensure your volume savings through subscription, we must ask the lab's PI for a twelve-month commitment in writing (application forms online). For accounting purposes, we define a lab as a group of people charging budgets under the same faculty PI. Details about our rates for other services are also online.

Stop by and meet the people. To discuss your specific application, please contact us to make an appointment.
