a) Assumes no or little prior microscopy experience. Training (10 hours) takes place on JEM-1220 (life science TEM), JEM-3010 (materials science TEM) or Hitachi S-3000N (SEM) only. Courses are different for SEM and life science/ materials science TEM. Users can change from one instrument to another in each type but will have to have additional conversion training. EMS staff will decide how much training is necessary to protect the instrumentation.



b) For unassisted use of more than 60 hours by a single PI, in a monthly billing cycle, a reduction will be made to the charged rates for use of aberration corrected STEMs. The reduced rates will be $52.20 (UIC), $87.60 (Academic) and $231.00 (Commercial). There will be no reductions for assisted use.
