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.
Rates displayed are in effect for fiscal year FY24, for the period July 1, 2023 — June 30, 2024. Changes anticipated for the next fiscal year will be marked when applicable.
Studies underwritten by for-profit (e.g. drug) companies for their own benefit are charged at commercial/industry rates rather than academic rates. Commercial/industry 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. This applies to all system usage fees and staff consulting rates.

AMRIS Facility weekdays include Monday-Friday for the following hours:
3T Siemens: 7:00am – 7:00pm
3T Philips: 8:00am – 5:00pm
All Others: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Hourly rate systems include 3T technologist support fees in the hourly fee, resulting in a higher price during weekdays while the support staff are available.
Daily and Block rate systems do not have different pricing after hours, as consulting fees are incurred separately.
Daily Rate systems: Each new reservation window begins at 8:00am, and you will be billed for the full daily rate for any amount of usage occurring on the reserved day. You may start your work at or after 8:00am, but all activities must be completed before 8:00am the next day. If you will need multiple days, please schedule accordingly.
Block Rate systems (7T/11T): Reservation blocks will be scheduled for 8:00am – 12:00pm, 12:00pm – 4:00pm, and 4:00pm – 8:00pm. We do not bill in half- or quarter-blocks.
