E.&E.S. Service Center & Instrumentation Reservations

This screen will permit you to reserve access to E&ES instruments. You need to have passed a training course to use these instruments; please see the lab supervisor for details. If you wish access when an instrument is listed as unavailable, such as after hours,please contact me in advance at dburney@sas.upenn.edu. If you are an E.&E.S. member and need access to a reserved instrument, please contact me for priority access.

Please make sure that your samples are ready to analyze before your appointment or risk losing the appointment. Also make sure you are ready to leave the lab by the end of your scheduled analytical time (i.e. the instrument is shut down, samples cleaned up, data stored properly, etc.) so that the lab can be either utlized by another user, or closed for the evening.

Note: please reserve 18 or more hours in advance.
