Requests for the time slots for scheduled equipment will be approved by the Core Manager by an email notification.

PI’s who pay an upfront fee have a priority in scheduling and usage of the equipment, given at least a 2 working day advanced notice. For example, if a request for an instrument’s time for Wednesday is placed on Monday before noon, then all other prescheduled requests will have to be rescheduled.  Otherwise, the researchers who pay upfront fee will have to comply with the first-scheduled first-served basis. Rescheduling will be advised by the Core Manager via email.
