* In order to keep costs low for CWRU users engineering staff time ($20/hr) is waived. The internal rate for data analysis services is $50 per hour.

# External academic/non-profit rates (instrument and engineer time) are the same as internal rates, plus overhead. The data analysis fee for this user class is $80 per hour.

The industrial rate for data analysis, sample preparation or any other assistance that is not related to instrument operation is $100 per hour.

§ 25% "off-peak" discount is offered for qualified and trained clients.  (Off-peak hours are 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. M-F and weekends.)

The minimum chargable time is 1/2 hour with 1/4 increments after that.

A minimum of 75% of scheduled time will be charged for each scheduled event. Exception during equipment outages and cancelations made at least 24 hours in advance.
