SMIF OPEN to ALL users
Before access to SMIF is granted, a SMIF COVID-19 User Agreement (CUA) must be read, understood and signed by the user and their supervisor and returned to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to entering the SMIF facility. Please submit the entire form not just the signature page.
Duke users: The Duke User CUA can be found by clicking here.
External Users: The External User CUA can be found by clicking here. In addition, each day before coming to Duke University’s campus, all external users must complete an on-line screening checklist. Instructions and a link to this checklist will be provided when we receive your signed CUA form and grant access

SAFETY CLASSES and EQUIPMENT TRAINING NOW BEING OFFERED ON A LIMITED BASIS
SMIF is now offering the SMIF General Lab Safety and Procedures class and the Cleanroom Safety and Procedures class virtually via zoom. The Wet Hood Training and Chemical Safety class will be offered in the near future. The schedule and sign-up for SMIF safety classes can be found here.
Equipment training and certification is also being offered on limited equipment, following social distancing and lab occupancy rules for COVID. SMIF has developed equipment training videos embedded into our operating procedures, and users are required to read through the operating procedure and watch the videos prior to the training in SMIF. A table showing what equipment is available for training and who to contact can be found here. This table will be updated periodically as additional equipment becomes available for training.
The Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF) at Duke University is an interdisciplinary, shared resource open to Duke University researchers from all schools and departments—as well as to users from other universities, government laboratories and industry.
