Welcome to the XSEDE Science Gateway for UltraScan!

This website offers access to the UltraScan Laboratory Information Management System (USLIMS), an XSEDE Science Gateway supported by an allocation through an XSEDE community account. This system provides web and database support for users of the UltraScan software. You can use this portal to access data associated with your sedimentation experiments, and share your data with collaborators. Authorized users can also use this site to model analytical ultracentrifugation experiments with UltraScan's high-performance analysis modules by submitting analysis jobs to computing clusters available at the University of Texas Health Science Center and XSEDE sites at the Texas Advanced Computing Center and at Indiana University. These services are made available through an NSF XSEDE community account (see below for funding credits). To obtain access to this resource please contact the project director.
