Services Mass Spectrometry

In practical terms, the facility carries out two distinct modes: collaborative or service. Fees are billed on an hourly basis for instruments usage.

  • Collaborative research requires advanced experiments by working closely in a true collaborative effort: a person of the research team is trained at the facility to prepare the samples and to interpret the data. The fees stand for machines maintenance contracts and consumables. Institut Curie subsidizes the rest.
  • Service: on each project, a service mode can be chosen if the co-signature is not wished. The analysis fees include people salary, structure costs and investments renewal.
