Fee Schedule

Although it is anticipated that researchers will prefer to have their samples analyzed by CARE staff, depending on the circumstances it may also be possible for researchers to book instrument time (after they receive appropriate training). Lab and equipment use will be the sole decision of the individual researcher managing the lab.
