QMR Request and Use Procedures

  • The QMR instrument is housed in the MMRU suite (1072) in the CNRF. 
  • You will need to get IACUC approval for performing the procedure on your animals.
  • New users must first go through training on instrument calibration, making measurements, cleaning up, and data access. Training is provided by MMRU staff and is arranged by contacting Dr. Fiorotto,
  • Once you have been trained, you will be given access to the online QMR calendar so that you can book time on the instrument directly.
  • Individuals who book always have priority to drop-ins.
  • It is critical that every time you use the instrument you enter the requested information in the instrument log folder.
  • The instrument is not connected to the Ethernet, and data should be saved on a USB device.
  • Failure to comply with the regulations will result in removal of access privileges.
