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.

Rate changes displayed for new fiscal year starting July 1, 2021.

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.

*Facility weekdays (Monday through Friday) are defined as 7am-7pm for the 3T Siemens, 8am-5pm on the 3T Philips systems (3T cost on both systems includes tech staff), and 8am-5pm for all other magnets (for which an additional staff consulting fee may apply).

DAILY (24hr) and BLOCK (4hr) RATE systems have the same pricing on weekdays and weekends; HOURLY (1hr) RATE systems have different pricing on weekdays while support staff are available.

For all systems with DAILY RATE billing, each new reservation window begins promptly at 8am -- you will be billed for the full daily rate for any amount of usage occurring on that day. You may start your work any time at or after 8am that day, but all activities must be completed before the next user's reservation begins at 8am. (If you need multiple days, please schedule accordingly.)

For BLOCK RATE billing (11 T System), reservation blocks will be scheduled for 8am-12pm, 12pm-4pm, and 4pm-8pm; the same block schedule and billing rate will extend to overnight hours and weekends as needed to meet demand.
