Equipment Use Rates
Some of our equipment requires hourly charges for use. Click below for a list of current rates. Please contact us for questions or attend one of our general training sessions.
We provide training on all of our imaging equipment either on a one-to-one basis, or we can accommodate complete labs or departments. General training sessions are provided at the beginning of each spring, fall, and summer semester and are open to faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, technical personnel, and undergraduate and high school students participating in independent research projects. We also offer training at various times throughout each semester based on user needs. Other training sessions will be posted as needs dictate. Please contact us if you require training at any other time during the year.
All animal use within our facility must have approval by the UT Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).
The CEB Bioimaging Core Facility is located in room 732 of the Science and Engineering Research Facility (SERF).
