We review all materials for compatibility with an open use environment taking care to avoid situations that place individuals at safety risk or their experiments at risk for cross-contamination.
Please be prepared to work with us to ensure we get useful information about your requested materials quickly. We will likely ask you for follow-up information. Please let us know if a deadline is involved but please be aware that it may take up to one-to-two weeks to complete the evaluation process.
Use this form to request any user-supplied material for use in any tool or process in the Nanofab.
- Any liquid, target, pellet, membrane, substrate, etc. not provided by Staff
- Any sample, device, or substrate that has been partially or fully processed outside the Nanofab
- Any material provided by the Nanofab that will be used in a manner not defined by an existing SOP
- Any material that has been previously approved, but has expired or approved for another user
Do not order the material until after approval has been granted. (There is no guarantee approval will be given.)
At this time, partial completions of the form cannot be saved. Exiting the form before entering all required fields will lose all information.
If existing SOP’s do not provide adequate processing and handling instructions, you MUST prepare an appropriate SOP prior to submitting the request. Please download and use the New Chemical SOP template to create the necessary SOP. Attach the new SOP to this request. Where multiple chemicals are being requested for a processing step, a single SOP for the processing step that includes all chemicals should be submitted.
