Fee Schedule

We encourage all prospective users of this facility to consult with us before submitting any sample for MS analysis (please see our policies).

For most projects, the total fee will be the combination of several of the following steps.


  1. There will be an additional 50% charge for nonprofit organizations not associated with the KU Medical Center, and 100% for for-profit organizations.
  2. For grants with effort support, this fee will be subtracted from total, until total effort available in grant is reached, then standard fee will be applied.
  3. In general, only personnel directly associated with the MSPCL have access to the instrumentation. The only exception is for trained personnel from one of the major users groups. In his case, the PI is charged for the initial training as well as the use of the instrument.
  4. The fee structure can be changed without previous notice.
  5. Special techniques: all other methodologies will be examined on a project per-project basis.
