Other costs and benefits

Free trial period

The BIF offers prospective users (or current users with substantially new projects) a free, one-hour imaging session in order to assess how well our equipment can image your sample. Please schedule a time with the facility manager to take advantage of this opportunity. 

Training fee

A one-time fee of $100 is charged for training on the Lumina or Nikon wide-field. The training fee for any other microscope or the VECTor/CT is $200. (Up to two members from the same lab can participate in the same training session at no extra cost.) This fee also covers unlimited help and the cost of laboratory expendables.

Animal housing fee

Small number of radioactive animals will be housed in the imaging area until they are cooled.  All other imaging animals should be returned to LSA 144. Standard housing rates can be found here. Please contact Sylvia Schlegel (sschlege@purdue.edu or (765) 494-2120) for animal housing reservation needs. This service costs $1.00/cage/day (internal) $1.55/cage/day (external).

Labor rate

Labor is charged at $73.00/hr (internal), $53.00/hr (PCPB) and $199.00/hr (external) if facility staff are hired to perform experimental design, data acquisition or data analysis.
