Service Charges

All users are charged for services. This charge offsets, in part, the substantial costs of maintaining this facility. Non-institutional users are charged at a higher rate than users located at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and Wake Forest University. Students and postdoctoral fellows can use the mass spectrometers after training and checkout. Discounts are available for overnight and weekend analysis and for large groups of samples analyzed under identical conditions. Questions should be directed to
