Training is required for use of any Core equipment. In general, five to six hours hands on training will be required for unsupervised operation of most microscopes. A user must show proficiency in operation on a particular instrument before they will be given access to the scheduling calendar to book their own time. For further information and to request training, please contact the Core Manager.  In addition the Core Manager also conducts "Confocal and Multiphoton Microscopy" workshops on a regular basis.  Such events will be announced on this page as information becomes available.
