All clients from the University of Toronto’s affiliated teaching hospitals and research institutions must provide the details of and biosafety information for their projects. Their institutional biosafety officer must also review and sign our registration forms indicating that they are aware that you may be travelling off campus with biological samples for the purposes of transport and analysis at the University of Toronto. Depending on the nature of your samples and your institution’s biosafety procedures, you may be required to complete additional training for Transportation of Dangerous Goods (please consult your institutional biosafety officer).
Once submitted to the flow cytometry facility, your forms will be processed internally and then sent to the University of Toronto’s biosafety committee. The approval process takes approximately 1 – 2 weeks. We cannot work with and for you without this approval, but once approval is granted, work can commence immediately. We will contact you once everything has cleared.
To begin this process please download and complete the external registration forms and submit completed PDFs to the flow cytometry facility via email.
NOTE: If more than one member of your lab wishes to register with the facility, separate forms detailing each project must be submitted. If lab members will be collaborating on the same project please add their names to the application on an additional blank page.
