High Throughput Biomedicine unit screening process and timeline:
For all projects involving chemical (standard or custom) or RNAi screen, the price is minimally composed of consumables and usage of automation equipment. Usage of automation equipment costs 100 euros/hour for first hour but additional hours are charged with reduced prices determined by the scale of the project. External customers are requested to inquire a price estimation for their project.
An example of pricing for internal (University of Helsinki) customers using our current standard oncology DSRT assay (FO4B) with eight drug plates containing 525 oncology drugs in five concentrations can be found here: https://www.fimm.fi/en/services/technology-centre/high-throughput-biomed...
Users of screening and analytical instruments and facilities are expected to cover the costs of consumables, reagents and use of instrumentation. Customers are requested to inquire a price estimation for their project.
Service related to computational work is provided free-of-charge and handled as academic collaborations due to intellectual property reasons on software licences.
