Work requests are generally completed on a first-come first-served basis. Minor rearrangements may be made when reagents or supplies are backordered from suppliers or if a minor shift in schedule can make better use of the equipment.
The Center for Medical Genomics reserves the right to break up larger experiments (> 32 arrays) if it can make better use of the equipment and allow center staff to minimize delays to small experiments. Delays can happen when the equipment fails. Customers are notified if this occurs.
