: 1.  As a user of a core, do you feel AAA is necessary for your research?
: (if so explain)
the best use we make of it is for protein determination 
: 2.  How many samples do you turn in per year for AAA?
50 to 100 samples a year
: 3.  What is a reasonable charge?
the chemicals per sample are negligable, so we don't charge anything.
Companies here however charge approx. 200 $.
