Analytical costs for solution ICP-MS are charged on a per-analysis basis, inclusive of all unknowns, standards, blanks, checks, and replicates required to provide high-quality publishable data. This charge basis helps recover costs for analyzing small numbers of samples, methods involving large numbers of analytes, consumables (gases, tubing, cones, lenses, reference standards), data reduction time, and instrument maintenance. Per-unknown costs decrease with increasing numbers of unknowns. Collaborative projects* are charged at 75% and are expected to include co-authorship on derivative publications. Charges may also apply for sample preparation, data processing, user training and method development. Savings may be available for analyses run outside of business hours by qualified users (https://www.jsg.utexas.edu/icp-ms/courses/).
|Solution ICP-MS User Group||Per analysis cost $|
|Internal academic collaborative (JSG/UT)||12.75|
|Internal academic (JSG/UT)||17.00|
|External academic collaborative (non-UT)||15.75|
|External academic (non-UT)||21.00|
