Usage rates are grouped into broad categories by technique and then by UVa or external use. Internal UVa users can be trained to use the equipment independently or be assisted by an instrument specialist. Industrial partner and external academic / government institutional rates include the support of an instrument specialist. Characterization and sample preparation instrumentation is available for UVa students and researchers, local and remote industrial partners, as well as academic, government, and non-profit institutions.

Further questions about rates can be directed to Richard White.
