SMART Labs User Fees

This page contains the most up-to-date user fees when using SMART Labs

Registration Fees

A one-time administrative fee of $200 charged for non-SMART Network registrants.

SMART Network registrants are defined as registrants who are directly linked with the SMART Network or are working on a project proposed by a member of the SMART Network.

Training Fees

For a user to reserve equipment in the LMACS (Laboratory Management & Access Control System) a user MUST be flagged as trained by the staff member in charge of the piece of equipment. To book training on equipment, a user can request training through LMACS.

Training fees are on-top of hourly equipment fees.

  • Training on equipment is set at $50/hour with a 1 hour minimum.

Some equipment may have unique training situations where a user is having direct hands-on training for the first few hours but is able to use the equipment with support-supervision for the remainder of the training session. With support supervision the user will be able to ask for periodic assistance in using the equipment and ask general questions.

  • Support-supervision is set at $25/hour

In the event there is a group training session with multiple users from the same group/project groups a group rate can be applied. A maximum of 3 people per group is set.

  • Group rates (up to 3 people) $75/hour with a 1 hour minimum.

When the designed trainer is satisfied that the user is able to use the chosen piece of equipment safely without supervision the trainer will flag the user as Trained in the LMACS system and they are now able to reserve equipment as needed.

Some pieces of equipment may have training that expires after a set amount of years and the user may have have a Support-supervision session after a long lapse in use of equipment in order to ensure the user is able to operate the equipment safely.
