The Princess Margaret has resumed limited operations. For all users, prior to submission of any samples, please coordinate electronically with PMGC staff in order to initiate a project. We will not be accepting any samples without prior arrangements. Please note that since we operating at significantly reduced capacity, processing time for all types of workflows may be longer than normal.
For customers resident in the PMCRT building, starting June 1, we will have sample drop boxes containing either wet or dry ice stationed outside of our lab 9-601 for sample drop off. Please make sure that samples are thoroughly labeled and documented. If you absolutely must speak with our staff in person, you are required to coordinate a meeting time and place, and if you will be entering PMGC lab space, you must bring your own UHN lab coat (bagged in the UHN-provided bag), and a fresh pair of gloves.
For customers external to PMCRT building, you must coordinate with a PMCRT staff member to arrange a sample exchange. This exchange will occur outside the PMCRT building. Please bring samples in a cardboard or styrofoam box of suitable size and with wet or dry ice if appropriate. You will not be permitted access to the PMCRT building except in special, prior-arranged circumstances, in which you will accompany a PMGC staff member up to the PMGC lab space. For those with approval to enter PMGC lab space, you must bring your own (bagged) institutional lab coat, and fresh gloves.
