To guarantee the long-term development of the Instrument Centre we prefer long-term contracts (2-5 years) with our partners. The longer the agreement is, the lower the rates are. MS runs are mainly done as a service, but in NMR the customer can also buy a certain amount of instrument time, which includes training of a researcher on the spectrometer. This operational model is free of security problems, because the only person who handles the samples and the spectra is the employee of the company. If you have no qualified person or no interest to run the NMR-spectra by yourself, the spectra can also be measured as a service. The runs can also be charged on hourly basis without a long-term contract. Every detail of the contract can be fitted into your needs.
