Technical Services by the Numbers
The gentle whizzing and whirring of scientific equipment throughout the Institute creates a soothing sound backdrop for all the research that takes place. When that sound is interrupted by a thump, a clank, or a sputter, the skilled technical services group is called upon to restore placidity.
Armed with a thorough understanding of drive belts, o-rings, bearings, and couplings, the technical services team provides critical maintenance, repair, and troubleshooting on numerous small and large lab instruments and equipment.
