Flow Cytometry Unit fees

The costs for the maintenance of the equipment of the FCU is mostly covered by the users of the facility. Up until now, we used a subscription system that greatly favored large groups, and had some unwanted side-effects. We therefore decided that from 2020 on, all costs will be calculated on a per-hour basis, calculated from the reserved time in the booked scheduler agenda. All users must register a project number (‘kostenplaatsnummer’), and a Principal Investigator (PI) to whom the invoice will be send. Every 3 months an update of the charged costs will be send to the responsible PI.

The costs for using the analyzers will be 20 € per hour
The costs for using the sorters will be 40 € per hour

Data analysis on one of the three computer systems of the CFU is free of charge.

Users from outside the UMCG/RuG will be charged:

Analyzers: 200 € per hour
Sorters: 300 € per hour

Invoices for 2019 will still be calculated on the basis of the subscription system as shown in the table below and will be available early in 2020.
