Equipment Scheduling and Use Policy

The SIF has many pieces of equipment for the UW community to use which includes: micro-balance, water extraction line, muffle furnace, centrifuge, solvent extractor, and a ball mill.

General Scheduling of the Equipment

All researchers/users should reserve a piece of equipment by contacting SIF to schedule a time.  If a discrepancy arises Chandelle will be responsible for allotting the correct amount of time for each request. In the event that a researcher/user requires more time than assigned, that researcher/user will need to contact Chandelle for approval of possible adjustments to the schedule.  Any time needed by the SIF for analysis will have priority.  The equipment are often in high demand.  The Stable Isotope Facility expects that the user will use the equipment for the time allotted them.  If the user is unable to use the equipment in the time scheduled, the SIF should be contacted 24hrs in advance.  If a user does not contact the SIF 24hrs in advance to cancel the time, they may not be allowed to use the equipment in the future.

Equipment Use

All users must be trained by SIF staff before they will be allowed to use any equipment.  Equipment should be checked by the user before use, to ensure the system is in proper condition and is in working order.  If equipment is not working please notify SIF personnel.  The balance will be checked after each use to ensure it has not been compromised by the user.  If there is any damage caused by the user, the user will be charged for any repair or replacement needed.
