VMS Equipment Info

Non-VMS scientists/students conducting research using VMS equipment will now need to arrange payment for that usage. These new fees will be put towards the costs for maintaining and upgrading our equipment. The following chart lists the cost-center information. Below that, you'll find links to contact person information and directions for using Quartzy. Note: Training is required to use the equipment below. See contact people for training info.
