Access and Services
Access to Instrument: We have two mechanisms for the users to access the instrument at the BMSF. (I) The users submit the samples to the BMSF and the BMSF will run the samples for them; (II) The users operate the instrument and analyze their samples after appropriate training. After the training with the BMSF, our users are capable of operating the instrument and processing the data knowing that the Facility Director is available for consultation if needed.
The instrument is generally scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
