Getting it Done
Scientists can obtain a free training to become independent certiﬁed users of the Instrument. Contact Melissa for the training. Certiﬁed Scripps FL users must pre-book the instrument on our Outlook calendar system and operate the instrument according to its posted guidelines.
Body composition studies require IACUC pre-approval. We offer a template AUP (see below) that users can modify as needed to obtain their lab-speciﬁc AUP for this procedure.
Scripps Research Community: $125 per hour.
External Academic: $125 per hour plus applicable indirect costs (plus labor if/when applicable).
External for-profit: $125 per hour plus applicable indirect costs and labor
