FAQs

How are the sorting and analyzing charges applied?

Users are charged by the minute for time spent working on the machines. For sorting, an additional hour is charged for each use (to account for startup, cleaning and shutdown time).

 

When will flow core charges be applied to my PI’s account?

The specific charging days vary monthly, but billing periods generally range from the 22nd day of the previous month to the 22nd of the current month. PIs receive monthly statements (sent by SRFA by email) before charges are applied to their accounts.
