SHRIMP contacts & bookings


External visitors should e-mail to arrange instrument time as far in advance as possible.  

ANU users

  1. In normal times: Please meet on the 3rd Monday of each month, 12.30-1pm in the DH Green room to discuss and confirm scheduled dates and make any adjustments.
  2. During  extended lockdown:
    Monthly scheduling meetings and advance scheduling have been suspended.  SHRIMP SI and SHRIMP RG remain accessible to approved analysts by direct arrangement with a minder. SHRIMP 2 is unavailable, pending repairs to a failed water chiller. During extended lockdown, the only minder permitted in the lab is Bin Fu. He can provide assistance or run samples on an external, commercial collaborative basis. Access and charge rate is approved by Penny King before SHRIMP time is allocated.

  3. Please see the Schedule for finalised times.  This will be updated, well before the end of the month.

This system aims to ensure more efficient use of SHRIMP time by minimising the number of changes to instrument configuration, especially on the SHRIMP SI.  Please note the transitional arrangements for 2021 that are indicated on the request form.

Sending samples to ANU

Please contact us before you send samples in the mail. Australian Quarantine will often inspect samples and these can be sent back to their origin if no one can verify the contents of the package.
