Rate Factors by User 

Internal Rate: University-subsidized rate for internal researchers at University of Delaware
Non-Profit Rate: User is conducting work for another academic institution or project is funded with federal funds
For-Profit Rate: User is conducting work for a for-profit organization (no federal funding used)

 

 

Assisted Surcharges Assisted use of Instrument by a member of the professional AMCL staff This is a rate multiplier as defined under “Rate Factors by User”, e.g., two hours’ use of the Bruker D 8 by a UD graduate student (base rate) is $60, but if the student was assisted for these two hours, the charge will be $180 (3x). If only one of the two hours was assisted, the charge will be $30 (unassisted hour) + 3 x $30 (assisted hour) = $120.
