Services Sample Dropoff

  • Dropoff samples for our services in ALS 3012 between 9am-4pm.
  • All samples can be dropped off only in the -20C freezer/refrigerator just inside the front door.  There are marked shelves for each service in this freezer. If your samples need to be transferred to the -80C freezer, send an email to that effect.
  • Please note that we are a BSL2 lab and access is only for the very front of the lab.  If you need to discuss anything about your samples when dropping them off, please make an appointment ahead of time with the relevant person.
  • Please follow OSU's current masks, distancing, personnel space requirements, and protocols.
