Self-service measurements

Research groups of the Faculty of Chemistry which have a focus on and experience with mass spectrometry, can reserve measurement time on some of our instruments for self-service measurements. Only researchers or technicians that are trained on the particular instrument and – after approval of a member of the management-team – have a valid access authorization (iButton) to the MSC are entitled for these measurements. Consumables have to be provided by the research group. The instruments have to be returned in the same state as before, which is documented by analysis of quality control samples at the end of the self-service measurements. All reconfiguration work (forth and back) and the quality control check should be performed within the reserved time slot and accordingly need to be considered in the planning of the experiment.
