Establishing a New SRL Facility -- From Lab Design, Instrument Purchase, Understanding Your User Base

Course Objective: 

?In establishing a new SRL Facility, or comprehensively upgrading an existing one, many factors have to be considered beyond the scope of purchasing an instrument and hiring someone to operate it. There is a wealth of expertise and published literature that can act as a guide, but major challenges arise in order to successfully implement the best practices needed to have a functional and productive SRL. It is the task of the new facility manager to gather detailed information about the need for the core facility, and refine this knowledge to get a realistic image and plan to set up and equip the shared resource lab.

Outline Overview of Factors for Consideration:?

  • Selecting the right manager and support staff.

  • Ensuring the dedicated space fulfils the needs for now and the future, depending on the space allocated, or the space that can be made. ?

  • Understanding your user base, the direction of the Institute, the access to other SRLs, and basing instrument purchases and infrastructure construction around these.

  • Funding Considerations: Allocating and ensuring money streams to fulfil the needs and wants of the SRL.

  • Ancillary equipment and infrastructure considerations beyond flow cytometers.
