How to Submit Samples
Submission forms and sample vials are available at the Facility. Be sure to answer all pertinent questions on the form and to label your sample and form with the same sample code/number. Taking the time to fill out your request will expedite your sample analysis and will help the staff make the right decisions about how to analyze your sample. Remember to obtain your research advisor's signature if he/she has stipulated that a signature must be obtained before analysis. A PDF submission form can be downloaded here.
Sample drop off/pick up
There are baskets in the Facility marked according to the ionization technique requested. Tape your sample to the submission form and place it in the appropriate basket. Samples can also be dropped off in the Mass Spectrometry Annex located in Lewis Hall (on the ground floor next to 8 Lewis). The drop off slots in Lewis Hall are emptied around 9 AM (Monday through Friday). Upon completion of the analysis, your sample and data can be picked up from the Facility in B207 Stanley Hall. Check with facility staff, when your data will be ready. For College of Chemistry customers, the data and sample will be placed in the Mass Spectrometry Annex in Lewis Hall upon completion of the analysis.
