Once you are a registered user in the MiCORES system, it is necessary to complete the Consultation Request found on the MDRC Chemistry Laboratory’s MiCORES page for all new studies/projects.
After you submit this information, laboratory personnel will reach out to you to review your project and develop an aliquoting scheme for the assays you have requested. The MDRC Chemistry Laboratory's aliquoting scheme will group the assays/sample types in such a way to minimize the number of freeze-thaw cycles (FTC) for the samples and will also minimize the number of aliquots that need to be prepared at the time of sample collection.
Once this review/approval process is complete, you will receive a MDRC Chemistry Laboratory Project Number. This number will be used in conjunction with the Sample Submission Form found on the MDRC Chemistry Laboratory’s MiCORES page for all future sample submissions associated with this project.
