Registration and Use of the Rockefeller University High-Throughput Screening Resource Center (HTSRC)
For users who are not employed or sponsored by The Rockefeller University, a collaboration agreement will be needed before an account will be approved. This should be signed by the principal investigator and the institutional signatory (someone who legally represents the University usually in the Technical Transfer Dept). This will need to be returned before utilization of the center. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you are not with Rockefeller University or Weill-Cornell Medical College please send your on campus I.P. address to email@example.com and after 24 hours you can then click on this link to the PPMS online booking system. Choose Account Creation Request and fill in the appropriate information. Please be sure to include contact information for sending the invoices/charges.
Once the account has been approved, please log in and agree to our center's guidelines and fill out a request (Training or Project).
- Training requests are for those users who would like to learn how to use a specific analytical instrument and already know how to design the experiments.
- Project requests are for those users who require scientific and/or technical guidance in developing an assay, designing experiments, measuring a pathway or interaction or performing a screening project. Fill-out the questionnaire about what the nature of the project is and/or what training is required. Usually within 2 days, somebody from the center will contact the user via email to schedule training on the instrument and/or discuss the project and what training will be needed. After training is completed, the user will be authorized to book instrument time online, work independently using the HTSRC facilities, schedule time for guidance and support and obtain the screening libraries.
After-Hours Access to the Center (normal hours M-F, 8:30AM-5:30 PM)
All after-hours users must obtain a Chemical Lab Certification
You will also need to obtain an ID badge by emailing HTSRC@rockefeller.edu with your name, institution of employment, job title, department/lab head name, and reason for requesting off-hours access to the center. You will then be cc'd on an email request to the head of security (Michael.Murphy@rockefeller.edu (212) 327-8506) to obtain an ID magnetic badge. You will need to print the email and go to room 102 Nurses Residence on Tuesdays (10AM to 11AM) or Thursdays (2PM to 3PM) to be photographed. Badges expire one year after date of issue and requests for extension should be addressed to the same email.
