The formula for calculating the per hour cost price of using KarRC RAS Core Facility equipment (F) is the following:
F = + B + C + D + E, where
depreciation of the equipment used in the activities and services, RUR per hour;
costs of maintenance and servicing of the key and auxiliary equipment used in the activities and services, RUR per hour;
electricity costs, RUR per hour;
D - consumables, RUR per hour;
E equipment operator wages, RUR per hour.

For KarRC RAS staff, the per hour cost price of using KarRC RAS CF equipment includes only the costs of consumables.
