Full sample preparation and imaging service is available for internal users.

All projects are handled on a first come basis to the greatest extent possible. Investigators are encouraged to schedule sample submission so that the staff is ready to immediately begin sample preparation and/or imaging. This is important for staff time management and scheduling.  Some samples require more extensive preparation than others but we try to have a maximum 2-week turn-around for all but the most extensive sample submissions.  If sample preparation is minimal the data may be ready the same day as submission.  Investigators are encouraged to attend imaging sessions whenever possible so they can direct this part of the process.

Additional information can be found under Facility Use Guidelines and Fee Structure sections.

See "Research Service Forms" for sample submission.
