We are sorry to announce that we will be shutting down all of the benches in the BION until the work is complete and they are compliant. We will let you know as soon as possible on any updates we receive. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
The INRF is now back open except for the wet benches. BION is open but there is still work being performed in some of the rooms. Jake is out all this week so please direct your questions to the lab staff on hand. That also means no User Meeting today.
The contractors have informed us that they plan to work on the INRF ventilation system through next Tuesday, 5/28. The INRF is scheduled to re-open on 5/29/13.
The INRF Lab will be closed for the remainder of today and tomorrow due to facilities/contractor work. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Contractors will begin working on the BiON ventilation system beginning this Friday 5/24/13 at 8:00AM and are scheduled to complete the work next Friday, 5/31/13.
The sequence of rooms covered will be as follows:
- 1432 (Friday, 5/24)
- 1431 (TBD)
- 1402 (TBD)
- 1412 (TBD)
- 1422 (TBD)
- 1421 (TBD)
- 1411 (TBD)
We have been informed that each room will only take a couple of hours to complete. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The contractors will also be taking a look at the INRF ventilation system today! We are hopeful that a temporary solution will be possible so the benches will be operational again soon.
The BiON cleanroom will be closed today due to the arrival of our new STS machine. This equipment is part of our on-going effort to renovate our cleanrooms. The BiON will re-open tomorrow, Wednesday, May 8th.
Jake will be meeting with EH&S today to discuss some of our issues. The User Meeting will resume next week at the normal time.
