Rate Factors by UserThe factors listed below multiply the base rate, e.g., two hours’ use of the Buker D 8 at the base rate is $60.


Assisted SurchargesAssisted use of Instrument by a member of the professional AMCL staffThis is a rate multiplier as defined under “Rate Factors by User”, e.g., two hours’ use of the Bruker D 8 by a UD graduate student (base rate) is $60, but if the student was assisted for these two hours, the charge will be $180 (3x). If only one of the two hours was assisted, the charge will be $30 (unassisted hour) + 3 x $30 (assisted hour) = $120.
