Rates quoted here are basic rates for projects funded through UAF and are subject to change without notice. Projects that are not funded through UAF are subject to an approximately 50% surcharge (see the UAF Office of Sponsored Programs for current rates) because of Federal regulations. Should your experiment need additional expendables (i.e. grinding agent for XRF pellets or a special column for LC-ICP-MS work) an additional charge on a cost plus basis will be applied unless you can provide the necessary supplies yourself.
