The Sample Preparation Laboratories provide wet lab facillities for SSRL and LCLS User Programs. The labs support final stage sample preparations and straight-forward laboratory manipulations in Biology, Chemistry, Materials Science and the Geosciences. SSRL houses two BioChemMat-focused Laboratories (BCM1 & 2) and one Geoscience-focused Laboratory. LCLS houses one laboratory supporting these disciplines in a more refined capacity. All Sample Preparation Laboratories are potentially available to all users.
Although lab managers are designated for SSRL and LCLS separately, both contacts are available for all Sample Preparation Laboratory needs or questions. See the sidebar at right for specific contact information.

This small general purpose wet lab is located in LCLS's Far Experimental Hall near MEC, CXI, and XCS. The lab serves all LCLS hutches and is available for final stage sample preparation. Due to space limitations, certain types of activities may be restricted and all access must be scheduled in advance.
