Prior to submitting a project request, please contact us to ensure that your experiments fit within our parameters and capabilities. Project requests should be submitted at least two weeks in advance to allow time to order needed reagents and plan experiments. Projects that only require the use of ION instrumentation should still submit a project request form. The use of all ION equipment must be scheduled and approved prior to use. Lab personnel should also fill out the user logs provided with the instruments. Please contact us in advance to avoid any scheduling conflicts.
The ION provides stand-alone services and coordinates with existing shared resources. When the ION submits samples to core facilities on behalf of a research group, that group will be charged regular rates charged by the core facility directly.
