Scheduling for the plate-reader can be viewed on the calendar below. Users may reserve time on the machine by clicking on the "Google Calendar" button at the bottom right corner of the calendar (please include phone # or e-mail). You may reserve time up to two weeks in advance. Please be considerate of the needs of others by not over-writing others' reservations, and reserving your time in half-hour increments.
