Flow Cytometry Core Finalizes New Rates Effective October 15
The Flow Cytometry Core rates are changing, effective October 15, 2015. As the economy has fluctuated and Federal funding resources have dwindled, the Core has managed to hold the rates steady for more than seven years. During that time, the Core:
- expanded from 4.8 full-time staff to 9.3 full-time staff,
- opened a fourth location on North Campus,
- replaced all existing equipment except Aria 1 and 2, and
- expanded the inventory of high-end equipment.
Over this period, appointment lead-times have fallen from 6-8 weeks to 2-3 days in most instances. Due to this expansion, the Core has accrued increased service expenses associated with the newly acquired instrumentation.
As a result, the Core must increase rates in order to continue to offer competitive instrumentation and service to the University of Michigan research community. We look forward to continuing to offer fast, reliable service on state-of-the-art equipment to meet all of your research needs.
As of October 15, all Flow Cytometry Core instrumentation will be $150/hour for technician operation. Self operation is will be available at $57/hour.
For more information, please contact David Adams, Manager of the Core.
About the Flow Cytometry Core
The Flow Cytometry Core, part of the Biomedical Research Core Facilities in the Office of Research, provides instrumentation and expertise to University of Michigan investigators - and the surrounding biotech community - in a broad range of basic and medical science disciplines. Samples are prepared by individual investigators, who then deliver samples to the Core for flow cytometric analysis or cell sorting. The Core also provides assistance in grant and publication preparation, publication-quality graphics, and development of experimental designs.
