X-Ray Charges


Structure determination, screening, and partial data set determined by x-ray facility personnel. (Effective: August 1, 2010)

  1. Crystal Structure: Structure determined by x-ray facility personnel. Includes data collection, structure determination and refinement and a short report including experimental procedure and results. A sliding scale based on data collection time will be used as follows:
    • $310: Sample with no problems and maximum data collection time of 48 hours
    • $465: Sample with some problems and maximum data collection time of 72 hours
    • $620: Sample with multiple problems and data collection time greater than 72 hours
  2. Crystal screening: $30 per sample submitted for crystal screening by x-ray facility personnel. A maximum of 3 crystals will be mounted and screened. If a suitable crystal is not found the sample will be returned to the user for re-crystallization.
  3. Partial data set: $200 per partial data set with structure solved but incomplete atomic coordinates refinement.
  4. Indexing etc.: $75 per sample submitted for crystal face indexing, unit cell determination, or location of particular HKL indices.

Structure determination, screening, and partial data set collected by user.

  1. Structure determination: A sliding scale based on data collection time will be used as follows:
    • $260: Maximum data collection time of 48 hours
    • $415: Maximum data collection time of 72 hours
    • $570: Data collection time greater than 72 hours
  2. Crystal screening: $10 per hour. No data set collected
  3. Partial data set: $150/sample maximum data collection time of 48 hours, $250/sample data collection time greater than 48 hours.

To qualify as an independent user it is necessary to be trained by facility personnel and pass a competency exam. In addition each user must complete the Radiation Safety Machine Initial Training Session and have both body and finger ring monitors issued to them.
