Due to the Phase 2 maximum room occupancy restrictions in Chemistry, we currently have a policy of one user at a time per instrument for all CIC instruments. We recognize the benefit of sharing instrument time as a mechanism for demonstrating aspects of the experimental setup or software to less-experienced users, and we are currently working on protocols to allow this kind of demonstration to be done in a remote way. For the time being, please make sure to follow the one user per instrument policy. If you have needs that require having two users present, please contact the appropriate CIC staff so that possibilities for remote demonstration can be explored. These requests will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, and will likely require a bit of time and creativity to implement. Your patience and understanding are appreciated.
On behalf of the CIC Staff,
John F. Berry & Charlie Fry
Directors, Chemistry Instrument Center
