I was just about to pose the same question, except my problem is fees.  I'm
going crazy trying to establish a set fee for immuno staining.  Some
antibodies are one step, no pre-treatment while others require MOM (mouse on
mouse) pre-treatment, heat, over night incubations, etc.  I've had some
investigators send me antibodies they know little to nothing about and ask
me to "see if I can get it to work"!   I'm curious to find out how others
charge for immunos.
