The Core Labs offer our users a full service facility on a number of equipment across all of our labs, except for the Supercomputing Core Lab. Our Full Service is accessed through our centralized, Request for Service (RFS) platform.

RFS is a service request management platform that enables users request Pocket ID approval, submit service requests, track progress, offer feedback.

Currently our Analytical Chemistry, Bioscience, Imaging and Characterization, Nanofabrication and Workshops can be accessed through RFS; for all other labs please contact the relevant lab directly.
