Step 1: Complete Safety Training

All NRF users must receive training in nano-ethics, and all on-site users must also complete the Washington University in St. Louis laboratory safety training and NRF lab specific safety training. External on-site users will receive a Washington University ID number in order to access the University’s online training system. Follow the links below for training

External users (users not from Washington University in St. Louis) who will be performing work on-site should contact the Lab Manager about additional paperwork that must be completed.

If you have any questions regarding the use of NRF, please e-mail  NRF-NNIN@wustl.edu .

Step 2: Register for a NRF Online Equipment Schedule (FOM) Account

The NRF online equipment schedule (FOM) is an online instrument reservation and billing information system.  Users must review the NRF User Policy and complete the necessary safety training before their account is activated.

Step 3: Schedule Instrument Training

Apply for instrument training in the NRF online equipment schedule (FOM). NRF staff will arrange your training time and provide directions to the lab. After successful completion of training users will be given card or punch code access to the lab and online access to the instrument calendar.
