On January 1st, 2021 the MEMS Department established a recharge center to help recover some of the costs of service, maintenance, and accessories for our shared instruments. We initiated our center with lower, departmental subsidized rates and at the beginning of the 2022 fiscal year (July 1st, 2021), will increase to our planned final rates*.

Internal pricing (WUSTL users) may be found here: MEMS SIG Internal Pricing. Please note that this document is in a BOX folder, you will need your WUSTL key and password to log in. 

For external pricing (other universities, government, and industry users), please contact Barbara Semar at bsemar@wustl.edu

Invoicing for equipment usage is managed through the iLab platform. PIs assign fund numbers to their users via iLab (please see details here) and users choose a fund when scheduling time on equipment. 

*Our rates have been developed by and will continue to adhere to WUSTL Recharge Center Policy. Rates may be changed at any time to ensure we follow the federal guidelines to operate as a recharge center. PIs will be notified before any change in rates takes effect.
