Services and Fees

Please contact Audric regarding services and their availability.

Audric is available to discuss and plan your lipid experiments in advance, and can direct you to other experts in the field when necessary.

Hands-on assistance and consultation is provided to University of Alberta users at no charge. Trainees are welcome to learn to perform sample prep such as lipid extractions and derivatizations in the core facility if needed.

Please note that users are encouraged to perform sample prep themselves, as the core is not always available to do this. Lipid extractions, sample derivatization, and transfer of sample into proper vials are all time-consuming tasks and come at an additional cost. Proper vials are available at no charge from the core.
