UCLA-DOE Biosciences

Time is available in 4 hour, 8 hour, or 24 hour blocks only. Currently, time reservations are done informally through the facility manager:

Robert Peterson
office: MSB 1435
phone: (310) 825-1816
email: peterson@mbi.ucla.edu

Hourly rates for spectrometer time:

500 MHz w. cryoprobe $11/hour
600 MHz w. cryoprobe $13/hour
800 MHz w. cryoprobe $16/hour

Rate for staff time is $50/hour, and is separate from the hourly charges for instrument time. For example, if you run a 48 hour experiment on the 600, and had one hour of staff assistance with the setup, you would be charged 48($13) + $50 = $674.


Anyone wishing to run experiments by themselves must demonstrate sufficient expertise. Training is generally informal and done with the facility manager. Various manuals can be found in the manuals page.
