Pricing

Chargeback fees for small molecule screens and large-scale projects are determined by the complexity of the experiment, consumables required and time needed on the automation equipment. Contact Core Scientific Director Jaime Cheah or Lead Engineer Christian Soule for inquiries, consultation, and estimated study cost.

Assisted and training use includes staff time plus per plate run. For independent use, trained users (9 am - 6 pm weekdays) and expert trained users (24/7) will be charged per plate run.
