Sample Preparation Laboratories (SPL)

LCLS Sample Preparation Laboratory (SPL)

The LCLS Sample Preparation Laboratories (SPL) are located on both sides of LCLS. The FEH wet lab is a small general use wet lab located in Rm 109 of the Far Experimental Hall near the MEC, CXI, and XCS hutches. The NEH wet lab is a general use wetlab located in Rm 112 of the Near Experimental Hall near the AMO, SXR, and XPP hutches. Both conveniently serve all LCLS hutches and are available for final stage sample preparation. Due to space limitations, certain types of activities may be restricted and all access must be scheduled in advance. User lab bench spaces may be temporarily assigned for 1 – 2 user groups at a time. Lab orientation is required for access.

The Sample Preparation Laboratories have restricted access and training is required for entry. Sample Preparation Laboratory training, Course 204, must be completed annually. LCLS training sessions are by appointment only, and meet in B999 Rm 109 (FEH) or B950 Rm112 (NEH). To make an appointment please contact your experimental POC and Christopher Kupitz. Please keep in mind that training slots are only available from 8am-2pm. LCLS training slots must be reserved in advance due to space limitations within the LCLS labs.
