Facilities Use Pricing

Many of the cutting-edge facilities at the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences are available for use by academic and external industry partners. Some, listed below, have set usage prices. Others require consultation with the directors of those facilities to determine pricing. For a full list of laboratory facilities at the Huck Institutes, see our Core Facilities page.

For additional consultative services, please contact the director of the core facilities below

Before any work can be started, Penn State requires a completed Academic Services Research Order (ARSO). Full instructions are contained in the ARSO Cover Letter.

Non-Penn State users must establish an account with iLab
