March 25 – Announcement regarding facility operations during the COVID-19 emergency

To everyone we serve at OSU and beyond:

First, we want to thank you for your patience as we continue to do our best to support investigators on and off campus. We will continue to share new information as soon as it becomes available, so please check back regularly!

Due to directives from the Ohio State University and state authorities regarding the COVID-19 emergency, we are taking the following measures:

  • The Lunch-And-Learn on Lipidomics, previously scheduled as face-to-face April 2, 2020, will be moved online. Please stay tuned for a new date and forum.
  • Sample analysis is on hold. Although we cannot accept any new samples at this time, we are fully available via email and web conferencing during normal hours. Please do not hesitate to reach out to discuss previous results or for consultations on future plans for when operations resume.

We wish you well and hope you and your families will be safe and healthy!
