[Histonet] charge for cryostat use

From:Jill Songer

Hi Histonetters,

We have a cryostat that lives in the histopath lab but we rarely use it. 
However it is used by  researchers both within the veterinary school and 
other departments on the University campus. we have not charged for the use 
of it, but are discussing instituting a charge to cover maintenance/repair 
fees. My question is, is anybody out there experiencing the same? Do you 
charge and if so, how much? Do you charge per hour or per use? The 
researchers use their own slides and blades, so we don't need to charge for 
those, but would like to recoup some of the money spent for recent repairs.
