To promote cost-effective research, the Maine INBRE Instrument Exchange facilitates the loan or donation of surplus equipment among network members. This is typically done annually in conjunction with the state-wide MBMSS symposium event held at MDI Biological Laboratory. The Research Training & Resources Core will communicate and coordinate with the network about available equipment in advance of this event, typically held annually in April.
All transfers must comply with the Instrument Exchange Agreement and must be reported to the lead institution using the Instrument Exchange Notification.
Contact the Research Training & Resources Core staff to offer or request equipment:
