Pandemic Mitigation Procedures


The X-Ray Facility Will Open June 1, 2020

Users will be able to make reservations in NUcore.  Contact the manager if you need training on a new instrument.

Users must follow the procedures below while in the facility to mitigate Corona Virus.

  • Enter the facility through the south-west door only. Exit only through any of the other three doors.
  • There is a maximum of 15 people allowed in the facility at any one time. Check the number of persons when you arrive. See manager if there are more than 15.
  • Wash your hands upon entering, follow the sign to sink area.
  • Wear a facemask while in the facility.
  • Only 1 user is allowed at a sample prep area. There are now 9 designated sample prep areas around the lab.
  • You are required to wipe the sample prep area down with the university supplied disinfectant when you have finished working. 
  • Do not spray disinfectant directly on equipment. Spray on to a paper towel and then wipe down surfaces.
  • Wipe off instrument door handles and the computer table with disinfectant. Do not wipe down the keyboard or mouse as this may cause software issues.
  • The disinfectant is located in a tray outside the manager’ s office. Return the bottles to the tray when finished. You can get disinfectant from ORS so, don’t walk-off with the bottle!
  • Only 1 person is allowed at an instrument or the ICDD / Jade analysis computer.  
  • Wash your hands when leaving.
