ICBR core labs will be officially closed during the UF holiday: Friday, Dec. 25 through Friday, Jan. 1.
No samples or other packages can be accepted during this holiday closure time. Please coordinate with individual core laboratories for delivery of samples or other packages either before or after the UF holiday break.
ICBR Reduced Services
During the day prior to the UF holiday, ICBR will be operating under “Reduced Services.” On Dec. 24, core labs may not be operating with a full staff. We recommend coordinating with individual core labs prior to these dates for deliveries scheduled on Monday, Dec. 21, Tuesday, Dec. 22, or Wednesday, Dec. 23. Most labs will resume accepting samples on Jan. 4, but please coordinate directly with the core lab.
