Getting started

    1. Project Request

    To start a project, please inform us about your samples, by filling in the Sample submission form.

    Once received, we will propose you a project initiation meeting. During this meeting, the experiments and sample preparation will be discussed and the cost and schedule will be estimated for your project.

    2. Training and reservation for instrument time

    Training is necessary to have access to the instruments. You can request for a training session by e-mail. Once trained, you will have to book the instruments you want to use, via our reservation system.

    3. Sample shipment

    If you need to send samples, please follow the instructions below.

    The samples should be sent well packed with enough ice (NO DRY ICE) using the courier of your choice. Usually it’s safer to send samples in the beginning of the week, especially when shipping from abroad.

    Please inform us when you have shipped your samples so we know when to expect them. You may also send us your delivery tracking code if available.

    If you are located nearby you can also bring your samples here directly. In this case, also please contact us first.
