Manuals and Methods

Only the primary manuals for each instrument are listed here.  Generally we have developed these training manuals ourselves, but they often contain content taken from vendor-produced manuals, and almost always contain screen shots of the instrument software.  As part of your training and use of the CIF instrumentation you may print a copy for your personal use.  Do not provide the manual to anyone else.  These manuals are intended strictly for use in the ISU Chemical Instrumentation Facility.

More complete listings of methods, application notes, "tips and tricks" will typically be found on each instrument page.
