A service estimate is made according to the time of use of the equipment of the core facility and the reagents necessary for the realization of the project.
Projects range from 1 week to 6 month. The benefits that we achieve the most are immunohistochemistry benefits and on average the project lasts one month.
The use of the equipment is also possible for the scientific teams of the public or private sector after training of the users by the staff of H2P2.
The services for private companies are set according to the quotations requested, contrary to the academic projects, which most often evolve during the progress of our services and can thus last several months.
With respect to intellectual property, the H2P2 core facility respects the confidentiality of the results data. H2P2 does not know at all what is done with data processing, of course. As far as the method, the processes and the protocols are concerned, strictly speaking there is no strict ownership. We are rather in a situation of permanent enrichment of skills by experience. At the discretion of the projects, H2P2 completes its know-how which will be as much advice for future projects.
In addition, some Excilone projects allow the development of new techniques or technologies from which the entire scientific community can benefit. This is the case of an “RNA Scope” in situ hybridization project.
These transfers are framed in the SATT contracts between Excilone and H2P2.
