Current changes due to COVID-19:
The repository will remain partially operational during the pandemic. At this time, we are processing sample requests for both internal and external users. Processing times are slower than normal.
Currently, only WHOI employees and students are permitted in the facility with prior approval through our space use request form. We are not accepting visitors or providing tours of our facility until further notice.
