Initiating a Request

Contact us to discuss your problem - feel free to stop in, call, or email us. If your item is transportable by hand or cart, bring it to our shop in NW1130. For very large items that cannot be moved, we will arrange to visit your lab. Please make an effort to clean and prepare the items to be worked on.
