Rates Optical Microscopy


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.
