Urgent request to all users of Geoscience laboratory
In connection with reconstruction of the laboratory and the reduced staff, an optimized planning in connection with the the use of lab and resources is required.
Therefore - Please notify Charlotte well in advance as soon as you know when and how much work you need.
This is to ensure a professional and optimized service to all users under the new conditions.
It is important that you keep yourself updated with the latest calculated price for a service - ask Charlotte.
As far as at all possible, the lab will try to meet urgent tasks with a high priority, but it will be a challenge in future to complete tasks with very short deadlines. If you have an urgent job, you may try to change priorities.
