Default pacbio sequel system

how much do core facilities charge to run the instrument, not per sample or SMRTcell but just to recover the cost of running the device? (electricity, nitrogen, etc.)

This is a rare case and I do not think that someone would have any readily available figures. It seems that you want to place your machine in a core lab and operate it yourself. The cost will depend on if you are going to use other facilities such as bench space and lab equipment. I would consider paying space rent and associated costs such as security, electricity, Nitrogen gas, IT infrastructure for transferring and/or storing data (sort of fixed expenses), insurance, lab mishapps and damage due to your system malfunction to their facility (might be covered by your insurance). You also have to work out compensation scheme if your machine is damaged due to a accident or negligence form their staff.

Most core facilities are subsidized by the university and do not need to develop a full cost accounting for the operation of their equipment. They look at prevailing rates, charge something similar, and hope the Research Office covers any loss. I'm curious what is motivating your question?

Since those costs will vary from place to place even if you managed to get facilities to divulge that information it may not be of use.
