"Instrument use" means the collection of data on the specified instrument by trained users.

"Assisted use" means the collection of data on the specified instrument by an employee of the Brandeis EM Facility. This rate is in addition to the instrument use rate and needs to be scheduled in addition to the instrument time.

Training is required for each user who will use an instrument before they will be allowed to sign up for it. Once trained, consultation is provided upon request at any time.
