Cellular Screening Center

Screening Fees

CSC staff will meet with the collaborating lab to assess the goals of the screen, assay details and readout, and feasibility of adapting the assay to a high-throughput format.

Following this initial consultation, CSC staff will prepare a project cost estimate. They will estimate screening costs based on the assay type, readout, and estimated length of time the screen will take.

Note that the length of the screen will depend on setup time as well as the actual time to perform the screen. The CSC strongly recommends the use of CSC validated cell lines (list is available in Cell Culture & Lines) in order to reduce the setup time and therefore reduce total project costs.
