Fees & Charges
All major instrumentation at Adelaide Microscopy is charged on an hourly basis.
The amount of financial subsidy depends on the funding source for the individual and not their status (e.g. university staff consulting for industry pay a corporate rate). We encourage users to operate the instruments themselves, however an Adelaide Microscopy staff member can be available for an additional $98/hr to the hourly rate. Technical assistance is provided free of charge at all times.
A sliding scale of subsidy is offered to all government funded research, the categories are:
Student and Research Staff of The University of Adelaide (inc affiliate title holders*) $35/hr
Student and Research Staff of another Institution (not enrolled at UofA) $98/hr
*Affiliate title holders must be able to charge a University of Adelaide project code to qualify for the discounted "Research Staff and Students of The University of Adelaide" rate. Students of affiliate staff and who are not enrolled at The University of Adelaide, or affiliates who request an invoice to be sent to another Institution/Organisation, do not qualify for the affiliated discount and will be charged at the "Other Institution" rate.
