Billing Policies

  • It is the user’s responsibility to reserve instrument time on iLabs and provide relevant information in the questionnaire, including account number(s) to be charged prior to using Core instrumentation.
  • Once the user finishes running samples and appropriately cleans the instrument, run time is logged manually in the User Log to the nearest quarter hour. All instrumentation use time is billed by the quarter hour.
  • At the end of the month, the amount of time reserved on iLabs and the amount of time logged for each reservation will be reviewed. The investigator will be billed for whichever amount of time is greater for each use. The total amount of time used each month is then listed by user and sent to the department for billing at the beginning of the next month.
