Instrument User Guides

Abridged instrument user guides are provided for each instrument at the Advanced Analysis Facility for basic use.  User guides provide step-by-step methodology for instrument start-up, running basic sample tests, saving data (and in some cases, data manipulation) and safe instrument shut-down procedure.

For advanced test methods or non-standard sample types, please contact AAF staff.
