Equipment is often expensive to purchase and sometimes not fully utilized; allowing members of the research community access to these devices is a way of taking full advantage of the machine. If your lab has equipment that you are willing to allow others to use, please let me know.
Disclaimer: The following list is a collection of resources available here on campus where the PI has agreed to allow limited use for other researchers. The presence of a device on this list does not mean that it will be available at the time you wish to use it, as the lab who owns it will have first priority on the machine. It is left to the labs to negotiate time and conditions of use. This is simply a list of resources; not a binding contract to allow others to use the equipment listed.
