HOW TO SUBMIT THE SAMPLES
 
The samples should be submitted in the prescribed format indicating the information called for as well as your special requirement, if any.If you are sending them by mail, please enclose the payment along with the samples and address the same to:
 
The Head , Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facility
Indian Institute of Technology Madras,
Chennai - 600 036.
 
Only on recipt of the payment along with the samples, they will be registered for analysis and taken up for measurement as per the seniority/queue of the users of the instrument concerned.As soon as the analysis is over, the spectra along with the receipt / bill will be sent to the users.While submitting samples for more than one analysis separate samples are to be sent for each.
An Important notice
As per the guidelines of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), in all publications of research work,  where in the  analytical services of the SAIF have been made use of,  the DST and the SAIF, IIT Madras shall be duly acknowledged.  Kindly send us the publication reference (Journal name/volume number/names of the authors/date of issue of the publication etc) to us.

A list of charges for spectral measurements, as stipulated by the Department of Science & Technology, New Delhi, is annexed. A "Three Tier" Charge System is being followed. Please note that :

  • The charges mentioned are for analysis of samples received from users within India only.
  • For overseas users, please contact SAIF by Email directly.
  • Charges are subject to change periodically
Mode of Payment
Please note the current policy on payment of analysis charges: Our current policy requires analysis that payment be received before the samples can be registered and analysis taken up. Please make sure that the payment is received along with the samples. Payments are to be made only by crossed demand draft (DD).
 
The DD must be drawn in favour of :
The Registrar, IIT Madras
payable at Chennai and must be sent along with samples and Registration form to:
 
The Head , Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facility
Indian Institute of Technology Madras,
Chennai - 600 036.
 
Please note that in the event the DD amount/payment received is more than the actual analyses charges incurred, it will NOT be possible to refund the excess amount paid. However, the excess amount may be adjusted against future analyses by the same user or another user from the same organization following a written request by Email or hard copy.
 
List of charges with effect from 15th - NOVEMBER - 2015.The charges include service tax
 
Please note that the testing charges now include a service tax component of 14.5% which has been revised from 14% in accordance with Goverment of India instructions.

Data & Structure
* "These are the minimum charges. Additional charges may be levied depending on the nature and complexity of the problem. Please contact SAIF Office / Dr. Babu Varghese / Dr. Sudha in this connection. "
 
Microwave digestion charges for ICP-OES:
Minimum charges per sample : . 450/-
Similar samples (up to 5 samples) : . 562/-
(6 - 10 samples) : . 810/-
(10 - 16 samples) : . 2250/-
If the samples are of different types, each sample will be charged separately

Additional Charges may be levied for:
  • Samples requiring special processing prior to measurement (subject to availability)
  • Deuterated solvents and other costly chemicals
  • Whenever specialized measurements are performed – which are not specified above [eg. VT NMR, DEPT(NMR), VT XRD]
For heating rates slower than 10 K/ min, charges will be according to the number of hours taken for measurement. (for DSC)
