Usage Flow

Usage Flow

 The supports provided by iSAL are divided into two categories: use of shared research equipment and use of services. All users are required to register iSAL in order to use any of the supports. The usage fee is calculated based on the quantity of support used. The usage fee balance is settled from the registered funds (refer to the figure below). In iSAL, these services are managed using the dedicated system called “KUMaCo“.

 Available supports are listed in Equipment and Services
