Training and access
Independent access will be granted to users after a half-day formal training and a half-day hands-on training. This is to ensure that users are properly trained for independent usage. After this, the user will be granted keycard access and usage of the microscopes. During the first month, users will be encouraged to use the microscope during hours when the microscopy staff is present. Additional training will be necessary for special applications such as FRAP, or long term imaging.
Offline analysis rendering capabilities are available in the LCN and the analysis computer can be booked online.
Technical assistance will be available for sample preparation for immunostaining, transfection, or time lapse imaging on a fee for training basis.
