You only need to sign up for the night queue, to verify the instrument is not overbooked. The samples will be run in the order they are submitted to the queue, not necessarily the order shown on the webcal schedule. If you are worried about the stability of a sample, you do not have to put it in the sample changer at the time of submission; you can wait until just before the time the sample will run.
Hourly rate: $24
