6. Become a badged LBNL “affiliate”

All users who will be at the Foundry for more than five business days during the course of your Foundry project must become LBNL “affiliates” (also known as “guests”). By becoming an affiliate, these users will be issued an LBNL identification badge giving them access to the lab, and an LBNL login identity known as an “LDAP”. To initiate the affiliate process, contact the Molecular Foundry’s affiliate processing ( Users will be contacted by the affiliate office two weeks before their arrival date with badge information.

Users who will be at the Foundry for fewer than five business days do not need to become badged affiliates. In this case, your assigned scientist will arrange for your visit with the LBNL security office.
