Additional Access Information
You can obtain a Proximity Card Form no sooner than one day after your training. If you already have a 5-digit prox card number on the back of your i-card, you do not need to get another prox card number. If you do need a prox card number, the form is $8.50, payable by cash or check (no debit or credit cards).
You will be able to get cylinder keys after you have obtained your prox card number. Each key requires a $25 refundable deposit, payable by cash or check.
Specialized Equipment Training
Once the above access procedures have been finalized, BioNano Lab users should contact the appropriate "super-user" to schedule individual training on any specialized equipment you will need to use in the BioNano Labs.
Safety Fact Sheets
A list of essential fact sheets providing details about working with BioSafety Level 2 (BSL-2) hazardous materials can be found on the DRS web site. (See: Biological Safety Fact Sheets.) Researchers and PI/Faculty are urged to read and understand these documents prior to the start of their work in the MNTL BioNano Labs. For further information please refer to the CDC booklet Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL).
