*Note on Instrument Time with Operator Assistance: If you require Operator Assistance for an instrument, the rate for “Instrument Operation/Training” will be added to the rate of the instrument you are reserving. For example, if you are a UCSF User requiring assistance on the FACSAria II Cell Sorter, your total cost will be (Flow Cytometry-Cell Sorting $65.76) + (Instrument Operation/Training $100.52) = $166.28.
