Experimental Safety Forms

Fill out APS Experimental Safety Forms (ESAF)

The APS Experiment Safety Approval Form (ESAF) should be submitted online. This information should be submitted at least one week before the start of your beamtime so that the appropriate approvals can be received. A step by step guide has been created for your reference. If at all possible, please use the ESAF link that is generated through the APS scheduling system and sent to you via email so that the fields are prepopulated.

You are required to:

  1. Provide the full names of all macromolecular crystal samples and the expression system (e.g. HpxO should be written Urate Oxidase expressed in E. coli). If you require or prefer this information to be kept confidential please check the confidential box at the end of line.
  2. Include all the experimenters who will be coming to NE-CAT or collecting data remotely on the ESAF form. If the PI is not coming, please list him/her as OFF-SITE and select an Onsite Spokesperson (OS).  Experimenters collecting data remotely should be listed as 'REMOTE' on the ESAF.
  3. If experiment is a General User Propsal (GUP), please enter the GUP number that is associated with this ESAF. (Only in cases where you did not use the link that prepopulates the ESAF information).
