Hourly chargeback fees for access to Nanowell Cytometry platform instrumentation are administered in 0.5 hour increments. The above fee schedule is effective August 1, 2023.

Please note: rates are set periodically, based on operating costs and in accordance with MIT and NCI policies. They are reviewed and approved annually by the MIT Office of Cost Analysis. Services are billed at the rate posted on the date of service delivery.

Access to the platform is available to all members of the MIT community, to the extent permitted by available capacity. Priority access is given to KI members, NCI-funded research projects and other contributing user groups in recognition of funding support. Depending on available capacity, access may be available to non-MIT users (details available on request from Nanowell Platform Lead Specialist Shanu Mehta).
