Radiation Resource

Please Read: Effective Jan. 1, 2023

The time is overdue to evaluate rates charged by the Radiation Core in loght of increasing costs. The fee schedule for the Radiation Core had been set for years as $75 instrument time and $50 person time per use. Also, the measurement quantity "use" was a bit ambiguous so we are also moving to a well-defined model.

Accordingly, we are initiating the process to change the rates:

Firstly, the basis is defined as a session which corresponds to a 30 minute block of time. (Reviewing usage patterns, most jobs get done within a single session. If you irradiate for 10 minutes, it tallied as a single session. We have a grace period of 5 minutes so 35 minutes would be charged as a single session.)

Secondly, the rates will be $100/session for instrument time and $50/session for assistance.

These modest changes. I hope that you are understanding.

Overview of Services


  • Maintaining and operating ionizing radiation-producing devices for cancer researchers
  • Consultation with users concerning instrumentation, services, training requirements, security clearances, and experimental design
