Biological Sample Preparation Room

The Biological Sample Preparation Room is located at D24 (right between the D2 and D3 doors) in the Storage Ring building and available around the clock (no need to sign up). Please read the instructions provided at the Biology Preparation Room website before using the room. For items requiring users to keep a log of equipment use, please provide the required information. Please also follow the rules regarding the disposal of effluent and the separation of experimental wastes. Please note that users are not allowed to check out the equipment in the room. If you wish to conduct experiments using organic solvents, use the preparation room in the Laboratory Building (Room No. 210) of the Medium-length Beamline Facility, where the draft chamber is available.
