We require 1 business day notice to cancel an LSR II experiment and sorting appointments, so that we may offer that time to other investigators.
In extenuating circumstances please contact the Core directly.

Cancellations with less than 1 business day will incur a fee based on the amount of time that the appointment would have taken. Sorting or analysis by facility operators performed beyond normal business hours (past 5 PM or on weekends) will incur a 25% surcharge.

Sorting (BSL-2/2+ and BSL-3) and complex multicolor LSR II experiments should be scheduled one week in advance.

Screened, live, unfixed human or non-human primate specimens will be sorted in the BSL2+ facility with UMMS approved screening information and IBC approval.

Sorting or analysis of BSL-3 samples will be run in our BSL-3 cell sorting facility.

Any potentially infectious samples for sorting must be discussed with us when scheduling.
