NMF services are available on a fee-for-service basis.  The table below indicates approximate pricing for several service categories.  Actual pricing will vary according to specific procedure elements selected by the PI.  New UTSW clients are eligible for cost credits to facilitate pilot projects to support grant submissions.

The NMF is not an “open-access” facility for use by non-NMF staff, except by special permission and with appropriate training.  Services are available to investigators from any academic institution or commercial enterprise, though priority for space and time will be given to investigators with primary academic appointments at UT Southwestern.
