Welcome to the CCMR Shared Facilities

COVID-19 Specific Information:

The CCMR Facilities are now open with limitations due to COVID-19. Updates will be posted here.

Facility users are expected to:

  • Complete the EH&S Return to Campus online training. Directions here.
  • Quarantine for 14 days if traveling from a ‘restricted state.’ If coming from a NYS region of similar phased restart, no quarantine is necessary.
  • Perform approved research only and to adhere to the reactivation plan of their research group. External industry or academic users must submit a COVID-19 external user agreement form.
  • Request initial instrument time or service through this Google form.
  • Complete the daily health procedure prior to arriving on campus each day, and adhere to all University policies.
  • Protective eye-wear with side shields is recommended but not required in low-risk areas with no chemicals present.
  • Bring their own cloth mask (no relief valves) to be worn at all times in facility rooms.

Important facility policies (at this time):

  • Very limited in-person trainings or in-person assistance. Any trainings which can be completed with brief in-room interactions will be indicated as such in FOM. Staff will be as creative as possible with remote assistance, but some things will not be possible.
  • Effective July 1, 2020, there will be staff labor charges for remote training, service work, and extensive assistance provided by CCMR staff.
  • No consuming of food or drink in any shared facility space.
  • Users are expected to disinfect instrument areas before use. Staff will provide instructions.
  • Occupancy limits of rooms will be posted and strictly enforced.
  • Instruments may only be used by the person for whom reserved in FOM. Instances requiring deviations from this must be approved by staff before the reservation time slot.
  • For the safety of our students, staff and families, and the broader community, we expect full compliance with these policies. There will be zero-tolerance  for violations or unfamiliarity of these policies, resulting in loss of facility privileges.
