Policies and Procedures

These policies are subject to change without notice. Please review them carefully. Failure to follow these policies will result in the loss of facility privileges.

  • Project initiation, as well as any changes in project direction, must be made by the Principle Investigator through the Core Director.† Please contact Dr. Sheryl White at 656-2007 to initiate your project.
  • All users must sign in on any equipment having sign up/log sheets.
  • All users must be trained to use facility equipment by either the Core Director (Dr. Sheryl White, 656-2007) or technicians (Thomm Buttolph, 656-4549 and Edward Zelazny, 656-4549).† It is not acceptable for users to train others on core equipment.
  • Users should bring any reagents/materials required for their experiments to the facility, unless prior arrangements have been made.† No chemicals are to be left in the facility without permission.
  • "Borrowing" of reagents/solutions/materials from the facility without express permission will not be tolerated.
  • All users must leave the equipment and benches in clean condition. Please report any unacceptable conditions immediately to facility personnel.
