We have printers setup on almost all floors of both Porter Bioscience and Gold Bioscience. Printing is being provided for free to all members of the department.

General Information

In addition to printing, all of these devices include both a scanning to email function and can serve as standard copiers. I can add your email to the address book of the printer you use most. This is handy if you use the scanning feature often.

You will find extra paper with each printer, and toner and a waste bin in the cabinet under each printer.

Use the list below to identify the printer nearest you and complete the setup instructions.
