The Dynamic Queue is currently prioritized as follows: 

  1. Covid-19 Research
  2. SPA Data Collection
  3. Tomography Data Collection
  4. Screening

When you Schedule Experiments, your dynamic queue request will show up on our queue list. All requests featuring a hold will show up in our pre-queue requests list (lower right) until the samples are on-site and ready to be loaded. Other holds are regarding hours. Requested experiments placed near an allocation's expiration date will require an extension request if the session cannot be scheduled prior to expiration. Once all holds are resolved, the request will be moved into the queue requests list (upper right) and scheduled based on date requested, length of session, and instrument availability. Potential wait (in weeks), shows the estimated number of week(s) to wait for the microscope. PNCC schedules weekly by Friday, if your estimated wait is less than 2, the request will likely be scheduled. More information listed in our FAQs.

Please note: PNCC reserves the right to modify schedules and queue traversal if needed to adapt and best utilize instrumentation. Changes to requests may require changing dates or position in the queue.
