Training, Equipment Usage, and Access Policies

Lab Access and Equipment Usage

Graduate students, staff, faculty, and others are welcome to the use the facility upon proper training. Reservations are required before use. Authorized users will be considered for 24/7 access on a case-by-case basis. Unsupervised use is limited to equipment which the user has been trained on and current documentation exists. Undergraduate students must be accompanied by a trained graduate student after hours (5 pm to 9 am).


Training will be by appointment only. Training requires a general safety and orientation overview. Users will be trained on equipment they desire to use. Training varies based on equipment. Training fees are also double the normal hourly rates for equipment usage, unless otherwise noted on the instrument pages.
