We have recently had approval to halve the academic user charge rates for the TripleTOF 6600 mass spectrometer in SBS, and to introduce an even more affordable rate for targeted analyses using MRM (Multiple Reaction Monitoring) methods on this instrument:
30min LC-MS/MS (Discovery-type) run = $125
60min LC-MS/MS (Discovery-type) run = $175
120min LC-MS/MS (Discovery-type) run = $225
New MRM method rate (Targeted analysis) = $65 per sample, after initial method set up (cost dependent upon the scope of analysis).
This instrument is available to any researcher, and while formal requests for service are submitted via iLab, any initial enquiries can be directed to myself (firstname.lastname@example.org).
