Most principal investigators receive a bill listing under one name all the work done for the month. However, if we know in advance of the month, bills can be provided with itemization per user and with a unique grant number per user. This can be very useful for large laboratories with multiple projects and funding sources.

All services are available on a first-come first-served basis.

In general, before using the AIF, please make an appointment with Frank and Michael to discuss your project.  This can help guarantee high quality and useful data from your first interaction with the AIF.
