Rates and Booking

Booking analysis time on the microprobe is easy and convenient.  Users simply need to fill in the online Analysis Request Form (in PDF format) and e-mail it to our Microprobe Technologist, Dan MacDonald (djm@dal.ca).  If you have any questions about the form, contact Dan, directly, at 902-494-7087, and he will be glad to help  you.  For new and prospective clients, we offer a ½-day, FREE session, in order to assess the suitability of your samples and applicability of EPMA analysis to your project(s). If your samples and goals would be better served by a different analytical method, or exceed the capabilities of EPMA analysis, we’ll tell you up front, and help guide you in the right direction.  In general, we prefer clients to book time at least 2 weeks in advance, although we will do our best to accommodate your needs if you urgently require results.  All other policy statements are found on the Analysis Request Form.
