We just started using Science Exchange within the past two weeks so I can't comment about how much volume there is from outside customers. We have had a couple requests already to quote projects through their concierge service and the core is given two business days to turn those quotes around. One thing I did before letting the cores sign up is to work with our legal counsel to review the terms of service and to work with Science Exchange to sign an institution-level agreement that would apply to all of our cores that use the site rather than just using the default terms. They were open to making this adjustment. I also spoke with someone that has been using the site for a while (and is a current board member) and she spoke positively of her experience, including the ability to turn down requests that were a bad fit for her core or because her internal volume was too high to be accepting outside work.
