Fees

All AMRIS fees are set according to Federal Cost Accounting Standards and reflect the cost of running the facility.  No profit is made from the user fees.

Studies underwritten by for-profit (e.g. drug) companies for their benefit are charged at commercial rather than academic rates.  Commercial fees are three times the academic rate and are intended to cover the infrastructure and other overhead costs that are not included in our academic rate.
