Scheduling and logging

Every laboratory and each user affiliated with it must create an account for the online reservation system Infinity (Idea Elan) before planning their training on any microscopes.

Users can schedule a reservation online on the Infinity Scheduler website, only for microscopes they have been trained on.

Bookings are restricted to 4 hour-long timeslots and with a maximum of 24h in advance.

If you require special accommodations (ie. Live cell imaging) please contact CBIA Core staff for booking information. Each user has a bank of 9 hours of reservation time per system that they may hold at any one time.

It is expected that users are punctual for time booked. 

Please create an Infinity account (follow the User guide above).

At the beginning of each session, users must start to track the instrument usage by unblocking the Infinity AUT Tracker.

Any cancellations of or adjustments to reservations on the Infinity system must be made >1h in advance of the original reservation start time.

Late cancellations, improper logging of reservations and "no shows" are not tolerated, and may result in the temporary loss of the access to the CBIA core equipment.
