New Processes and Pricing for FY19
New Cell Pickup Procedure - 45 min warning emails
Please note that there is a new procedure for cell pickups. The NRU will no longer be calling individuals when cells are ready. Please go to the Ordering Information page on the Info & Forms pulldown menu for more information. For questions on cell pickups, please email the NRU mailbox at email@example.com. We will not answer the phone inside the lab while dissections are taking place, so for the quickest response, please email. Thank you.
New Forms for FY19
The NRU will no longer be accepting emailed orders. All non-custom order requests must be submitted using one of the two forms posted on our website. Please see the Ordering Info & Forms tab for more information and access to the forms. All dissections and custom order requests should be emailed to the director. For Off Campus users, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the forms.
