Our calendar reservation system has changed and eventually our ordering system will switch to the new system, Research Equipment & Lab Management System (RELMS).   RELMS is a transaction processing system for facilities to manage users, schedule equipment, track usage, and bill for services.  RELMS automates and streamlines existing processes. 

We have transitioned all our reservation instruments into RELMS.  You will need an account in RELMS to make reservations. When you utilize the calendar for the instrument, please go to RELMS to make a reservation.  You then login as an OSU user.  Here is a demo on how to login as an OSU user. 

A reservation in the calendar system will give you preference on the system and for some instruments it is necessary for use. All equipment notices regarding down time or access will be posted on the relevant calendar in RELMS. It is visible only if you have access to the instrument calendar.

If you will need to purchase an item through RELMS such as a MAP16 plate for Digital PCR, or use our confocal microscope, you will need to add payment information to RELMS in order to make that process work. If so fill out the form (Here) – it requests the payment source information (index) that we can use to set up a payment account. For reservations on instruments without a charge, which are almost all of them, you will not need to do this.

We want to thank you in advance for your patience during our pilot program.  Additional communications and training materials are available at the Research Office website here: RELMS website.  If there are any questions about how to use the new system, l can also help make reservations and show you what is needed.
