EMU charges

New user registration fee:

From January 2020 there will be a new user fee of $250 per new user. The new user fee entitles the user to training in microscope use, specimen preparation and scientific/technical support from EMU staff. This will be applied at the first billing cycle after registration. All instrument use will be charged at the hourly rate with no additional charges for training and support.

Charges for the various techniques and for consumables are listed below. If you have any questions, please contact us.
