Scheduling is on a first-come, first-served basis. Users are charged from the beginning of their reservation time. For the FACSAria Fusion, users are charged a minimum of one hour for instrument set up and alignment in addition to their actual sorting time. 
Individuals trained and certified on the FACSymphony analyzer can, upon agreement, use the analyzer after hours.
