The General Equipment Core, located within the Emory-Children’s Center (ECC) and the Health Science Research Building (HSRB), provides access to shared equipment and space for processing clinical samples to all Emory+Children’s affiliated investigators. This core provides a generous amount of bench space on the 2nd floor of the Emory-Children’s Center building for routine processing of specimens. This equipment is available to all ECPRC affiliated investigators but please be advised:

  •       Usage log must be filled out each time the equipment is used. This information is used to assess the usefulness of the core and its impact on pediatric research.
  •       The equipment is shared by others and so it is to be used temporarily, on an as-needed basis.
  •        No samples or supplies are to be left in or around the equipment.
  •       The equipment and surrounding areas should be cleaned thoroughly after each use.
  •       Biohazard waste (solid and liquid) should be disposed of properly.
