Training
Microtome and Cryostat Training

Training on HCF equipment is required to ensure the safety of users, prevent equipment damage and optimize results. There is a fee for training all new users on the equipment. Individuals who have used similar equipment at other institutions will be required to take a refresher course before using the equipment.

Please see the Histology Core Facility page on iLab for the posted monthly scheduled training dates. Registration for new users and for booking time on the equipment is done through iLab.
