Technicians are available for any technical services, training, or consultation. Arrangements for technician services should be made in advance.

Small amounts of consumable supplies (digital media, specimen stubs, fixatives, embedding media, etc.) for microscopy may be obtained from our lab and will be billed at our cost (including tax, shipping, and overhead).

We are always willing to discuss the feasibility of projects. The first .5 hour is free of charge. We also provide cost estimates without obligation. The ultimate billing of the work will be based upon total technical and instrumentation time utilized.

Instrumentation is available for individual use after training has been provided by our staff.

Once instrumentation competency has been demonstrated, after hours work can be considered.

If a contract is required, we have a University of California at Davis Health System template available for your legal department approval.
