Access Procedure: 
Trained users will have keycard access to the lab and will be able to book and use the analytical instruments. For ease of management, molecular biology instruments located in the BNL are also part of the Analytical core. Researchers can also engage BNL staff to perform basic molecular biological experiments such as recombinant protein expression. Cost will be on a project-by-project basis and will include staff man-hours, materials used and instrument recharges.
Steps to Use Equipment
  1. Contact BNL staff to get trained on the instrument.
  2. Apply to CNSI for electronic door access to the facility.
  3. BNL Staff will add you to the FBS reservation system.
