Bookings Bookings

Bookings can be made for all microscopes using the PPMS booking system (see link below). Availability of the microscopes can be checked by examination of the schedules, HERE.
After clicking on the link below, access to the booking system is gained by choosing the appropriate login button, and then entering your username and password. If you are not registered on the system you will need to make an "Account creation request". Individual users will only have access to the particular systems for which they have been approved. To gain approval you will have to undergo a training session on the system with Paul Thomas. Requests for training can also be made on the PPMS system. The Imaging lab and Analysis suite are protected by security codes which will only be given to approved users. We trust that all users will keep these codes safe, and not pass them on to anyone that has not been properly trained/approved.

CHARGES: Those of you in the Faculty of Science (UEA) who cannot afford the full Economic Cost (fEC) may request access to the Imaging laboratory at the Direct Cost (DC) rate using this form. Applications will be reviewed at the SCI Research Executive (which meets every two months). Please note that access to the Imaging laboratory at subsidized-DC rates will only be granted in circumstances where (1) usage capacity exists within the facility, (2) the applicant is clearly seeking funding from external sources, and/or (3) evidence is provided that there will be a clear return on investment. It is expected that subsidized access will only be provided in one-off situations, such as to generate pilot data for a significant grant application, or to complete an important piece of research. Completed forms will require the input of the facility manager, and should then be sent to your Director of Research.
