Crystal structure determination is a multi-step process with some steps more difficult than others. The success of each step cannot be easily predicted and the time for a new structure can vary from a few months to a couple of years. As a result, no straightforward answer can be given regarding pricing. The table below shows the minimum prices related to a service.
People who are interested in using our services should discuss with us to find the best way to deal with these issues and agree the costs involved in each step. Collaborative projects can also be established for short or long periods of time. Based, however, on instructions from Biocenter Finland, a fee will be asked even for collaborative projects to cover expenses of the facility.
