CQLS Facilities Policies and Protocols

Please follow OSU's current masks, distancing, personnel space requirements, and protocols when accessing CQLS facilities.

Self-serve sample drop off in ALS 3012 is during our open hours without an appointment. Typically, we are open between 9am-4pm but not guaranteed.

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.
