User Fees

Access to Umeå NMR Platform is based on project application and approval. We welcome applications from beginners to experts. Access to the infrastructure is based on evaluation of project applications. Access can range from solely NMR instrument time, to measurement and data analysis support by our staff, to collaborative projects. Projects are prioritized based on scientific quality and on demand of infrastructure resources. The type of project does NOT need to be listed below for an application to be accepted.

Cost of access is based on the running costs of the spectrometers, consumables and, if applicable, personnel costs (see below for more information regarding specific project types). 10 hours of personnel time is included in all approved projects but can be extended for academic collaborations. For academic users, the prices listed below include overhead. Industrial users has 3x the listed rates and pay 1500 SEK/h for extra personnel time.


Spectrometer Time

850 MHz        SEK 2600/day
600 MHz        SEK 2100/day
500 MHz        SEK 1250/day
400 MHz        SEK 1250/day

Metabolomics and Fragment Based Screening(FBS)

200 SEK/sample (liquid)
350 SEK/sample (solid/tissue)

All Metabolomics and Fragment Based Screening projects include up to 40 hrs of staff time for pre & post-analytical handling, PCA & report.

For FBS additional fees for compound libraries might apply.

If a collaborative mode of service model is desired, please contact staff for details and discussion.

If additional time is required or desired, staff and/or spectrometer hourly rates will be applied.

Open access usage of the 400 and 600 MHz spectrometers is billed only for instrument time and at half rate during the night (19-08).

400 MHz SEK 160/h
600 MHz SEK 320/h

Only actual acquisition time will be accounted (e.g. ca. 1min for 1D 1H, ca. 5min for 2D COSY).

Longer experiments (>30 min) are performed during night time (19h00-08h00) and weekends and are billed at 50% rate.

Basic support and communication is included.
