3Training fee waived if required to begin a self-service project consisting of 20 or more injections.  

 

IMPORTANT NOTICES:

  1. 2017 rates will apply from August 1, 2017

  2. Users wishing to use the ACL's Lab Logic Beta Ram 4 Scintillation Counter must have obtained radiation safety certification from KUMC's EHS department before use.

  3. Investigators should build in a 25% price increase each year when building his/her Grant application budget.

  4. Additional charges will be applied in the following instances:

    • Excessive use of consumables (solvents, plastic and single-use specialized glassware) during sample preparation.

      a.  U/HPLC mobile phases should be considered to be perishable and clients need to take this into consideration when preparing them.

              --    These mixtures are subject to out-gasing of volitile components or microbial contamination or both.
              --    
      Mobile phase mixtures are to prepared in volumes rationally related to their immediate use.

              --     Preparation of excessive amounts of these compounds will result in additional charges being levied.
      b.  LC-MS instruments utilize single-use auto-injector vials whose precise dimensions command a premium price-tag.

             --      If you use autosampler vials for sample preparation purposes, you will be charged extra.

             --      For those projects that require low volume or glass-only manipulations or both: use cheaper mass produced glass tubes and vials vessels.

      c.   Breakage of equipment due to inappropriate handling.
            --      
      Mobile phases containing dissolved components that ~must~ be filtered through the 0.22 µm GHP or Nylon filters supplied to clients by the ACL. NO exceptions!  The full price of replacing fouled filters and torn high-pressure seals will be chared to any researcher who violates the mandatory filtration rule!
            --      
      The ACL's mass spectrometers are sensitive to detergents, thus the only ACL-owned and maintained glassware is permitted. The ACL provides all necessary glassware and washes it for you. Therefore clients who violate this rule will be charged the full cost of decontaminating the LC-MS!
