BCHM IT Services

3D Printing

The department has 2 Prusa MK3 3D Printers available upon request to print your scientific models or other items.

Freezer Monitor & Sensor Development

BCHM IT currently offers low-cost, temperature monitor solutions for -80 and -20 freezers, standard freezers, and refrigerators.  We can also work with you to create custom temperature monitoring solutions for non-standard situations.

BCHM IT also provides consultation and where needed development of other types of sensors.  There are too many options to list and consultation is needed to assess your sensor needs and environment.  Please contact us to begin the process.

Research Instrument Computer Purchase Consultation

BCHM IT will work with you every step of the way to make sure you get the best possible outcome when purchasing an instrument that comes with a computer.  It's best to loop us in from the very beginning but we will jump in at any point and consult. 

General Use Lab Computer Purchase Consultation Service

BCHM IT can help you get the right resources for the work required.  When a standard AgIT leased computer is not suitable for the task we have a standard PC platform available with differing tiers of computation.  We can also customize any hardware to meet your needs. To assess your needs we will do an initial consultation and work with you from there to get you the resources you need.

Research Instrument Computer Support

BCHM IT is here to help troubleshoot problems with computers that are connected to research instruments.  Let us know if you need help.  We will do an initial assessment of the problem and work with you on getting your research back up and running as fast as possible.  *NOTE* It's not always possible for us to fix, repair, or even do much troubleshooting on certain computers.  Should this be the case you will be informed as part of the initial assessment and we will pass along any information that we have that might be of help.

Technology Consultation

BCHM IT provides on-demand consultation for any technology related items.  While this includes computers it is not limited to just this topic.  We can consult with you on data management plans, technology infrastructure planning, HPCC resources, and website planning.  No topic is too small or too large.  If we don't provide what you need we will find the resources that you need to get the job done.
