    If you can’t use your booking, please cancel it as soon as possible to allow others use the instruments.

    To access equipment or ask a question, please contact the Facility Coordinator.


    Standard access fees for use of the SVI Mass Spectrometry facility and resources are required to contribute towards consumables and instrument and facility running costs, including staff, maintenance, calibrations and in some cases to include a modest contribution towards servicing and replacement.

    Costs for other users will be on a cost-recovery model depending on the number of samples and the difficulty of the analysis to be undertaken. A membership model is also available for laboratories.
