For internal users
Here you may find information regarding relevant documents (e.g. lab guide lines, lists of consumables provided by the internal lab budget, protocols etc), and make reservations for the sensi- and ancient DNA lab.
We have also made an internal Google Drive folder for the DNA lab. You can find a lot of useful tools here. Note that non-administrators only have read access.

Primer orders may be performed by filling out this form and send it to the lab manager.
Mac users must fill in yellow fields in this order form and send it to the lab manager.
Material Transfer Agreement (MTA)
An agreement for guest researchers bringing biological material to facilitate their own research at the DNA-lab at NHM can be found here. Please save the file locally, fill out the required fields in the agreement electronically, then print and sign the document. The agreement is based on the "Material Transfer Agreement - MTA4" provided by the Consortium of European Taxonomic Facilities (CETAF).
It is important that all lab experiments are properly recorded. This is critical in order to replicate experiments and document experimental work. A "how to" tutorial of recording lab work may be found here.
Bench fee (June 2015)
