KNI Information & Billing Forms

External Users

Non-Caltech Academic/Government and Industry/Corporate members are considered external users. There are additional requirements to set up an external user's KNI lab membership:

  • Facilities Use Agreement (FUA)
  • Proof of Liability Insurance (COI)
  • Purchase Order (PO)

Please contact Tiffany Kimoto (tkimoto@caltech.edu) for full instructions and the required paperwork for setting up your external lab membership.

Next Steps

For all users: Once paperwork has been submitted, please contact Associate Director of Technical Operations Guy DeRose (derose@caltech.edu), and Lab Coordinator and Safety Officer Bert Mendoza (bertm@caltech.edu), to schedule your general safety training session. Training will take about 3 hours total, including the in-lab wet chemistry portion.

NOTE: If you will be using the Tecnai TF-30 TEM only, you can bypass the general safety training requirement and contact Matthew Hunt (matthew.hunt@caltech.edu) directly to schedule instrument training.
