Light microscopy training

The specified training fees are for standard trainings. Depending on the needs and experience of the user both the time and cost might be altered. When the user is fully trained, which may take longer than the basic training sessions, he/she is given access to the microscope at any time.

Please contact the staff, preferably using cci@gu.se, for more information about prices and to schedule the training sessions.

Staff assistance

Technical support is included to a limit and we will not charge anything if you come to try something or to ask for advice. However, more extensive assistance during longer times or new/repeated training will be charged by the hour in addition to the microscope fee.

Staff time: microscope assistance
Academia: 550 SEK/h
Industry: 1100SEK/h

Pricing notes

  • During off-hours (between 19:00 and 8:00) the prices are reduced by 50 %. Long time-lapse imaging should always be scheduled during these hours.
  • 24 hours cancellation notice is required to avoid charges. We have this to avoid unnecessary over-booking of the instruments.
  • For external users, the fees are higher in order to cover the "overhead" cost for rent, administration and VAT. The price may also vary depending on the time and assistance requested.
