All users must show competence and responsibility in the use of the relevant CBIA Core instruments. For this reason, training is mandatory for all users. Training sessions must be requested prior to anticipated use and must be administered by CBIA personnel.
NEW! Only the samples brought by the trainee will be used for the training session, to help the user getting imaging data with the proper settings right away.
Training will not be carried out until imaging experiments are imminent in order to ensure nothing is forgotten between system training and use.
It is up to CBIA personnel to decide whether the user has demonstrated a thorough familiarity with the instrument to be granted unsupervised access. For training only a training fee will be charged (members 35$/h non-members $50/h) A maximum of 2 lab-members may be trained per session. Training received from previous users is prohibited, and does not qualify a new user for independent access to the systems.
To receive training on CBIA Core instruments please ensure you have created an account on our online scheduling page. Users are encouraged to discuss experimental design details with CBIA Core staff in order to pick the most suitable system for carrying out planned experiments. Sound knowledge of research question and fluorophores is required for an effective consultation.
Microscope rooms have restricted access and are locked. Access is obtained by signing out keys to respective rooms in the CBIA Core office (RGN 3171) during hours of operation.
