The IMSC facilities are available to all research groups of the University of Groningen (RUG) and University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) at a nominal fee to cover the running costs of the equipment. Commercial customers are also welcome, but will be charged a fee that includes personnel, depreciation of equipment, and overhead.

The current academic fees are € 30 / hour; for more information see here.

In addition, scientific contributions of the IMSC are expected to be acknowledged in publications, as detailed here.

For large and/or high-throughput projects reduced fees are possible.
