As a leading research university, we have the opportunity to help other academic institutions in their research efforts. By setting up an account with our facility, academic institutions can analyze their samples at a fraction of the normal industry rates, thereby saving valuable research funding.  This TTA is also used for our commercial clients.

In order to protect the intellectual property of your work, the University of Illinois requires you to establish a Technical Testing Agreement (TTA). If you would like to start an account with our lab, please download the TTA form and fill it in. The Principal Investigator/Advisor/Laboratory Head needs to fill out the areas highlighted, sign it and either:

Scan and email a copy of the signed TTA to Elizabeth Eves at:
