Instrument Room Guidelines
Simple operating instructions for the instruments can be found on Dr. Williamsenís
Web page (http://webpages.ursinus.edu/ewilliamsen)
under Ursinus College Chemistry Department Instrument Room Information
or on the Chemistry Department Web page (http://vax.ursinus.edu/~chemistry/).
Manuals for the instruments can be found on the shelves on the wall near
Sample preparation should be kept to a minimum in Pfahler 316. Your samples
should be prepared in your research laboratory, teaching laboratory, or
in the Analytical Chemistry laboratory (Pfahler 301). The Analytical Chemistry
laboratory is equipped with analytical balances, sample presses, infrared
(IR) sampling equipment, and deionized water. All samples and waste should
be removed from Pfahler 316 after your measurements are finished.
Report any problems with the instruments or requests for new supplies to
Dr. Williamsen (ewilliamsen) at other times.
Write the date and time of your measurements and your initials in the log
book located near each instrument. If you have any problems with the instrument,
note these in the log book and report the problem.
Clean up the area around the instrument after you are finished.
Do not store anything in the instrument room unless you receive permission.
For systems that can print on a network, two printers will commonly be
used. The Epson 850 is a color, ink jet printer that is networked and is
located next to the HP GCD GC/MS in Pfahler 316. The printer is called
Epson Color ESC/P 2 or Epson Stylus Color 850. This printer can print in
color and has a maximum resolution of 800x500 dpi. The Hewlett Packard
LaserJet 4000 is a black and white laser printer that is networked and
is found in a cabinet below the Hewlett Packard 1090 HPLC in Pfahler 308.
The printer can print only in black and white and has a resolution of up
to 1200 dpi. The printer is called Hewlett Packard LaserJet 4000 PCL 6.
If you do not need to use color, use the Hewlett Packard printer.
