Cancellation Policy:

Sort cancellations with less than 48 hr notice will incur a charge of 2 hrs (1 hr setup and 1 hr sorting). 
We do not accept cancellations by email – they must be made by calling the staff at 6-3276 during business hours.
  • This policy applies to core staff - sorting appointments only, unless other cancellations become a problem in the future. However, please cancel LSRII appointments and after-hours, self-sorting appointments with as much notice as possible in consideration for other users.
  • If you are able to find someone else to use your scheduled appointment, we will not charge you a cancellation fee. Of course, the new sort must fit within the scheduled or available time. 

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

Screened, live, unfixed human or non-human primate specimens will be sorted in the BSL-2+ facility with UMMS approved screening information and IBC approval (see our Biosafety page).

Sorting 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.
