How to acquire (and analyze) data
Consultation - The first step is to meet us (in person or by Zoom) to discuss your needs and determine the most appropriate microscope.
Test First - If necessary, we will give you permission in the booking system to schedule a test (by us) on a specific microscope.
We Acquire - If you only need a few images, we will give you booking permission and do the acquisition for you, no training required.
Training is mandatory for independent use, even if you have already used the microscope elsewhere. We book the training session.
Assisted Use must occur within 2 weeks after training. You will have in training booking permissions and our help during the sessions.
Independence - Once you are comfortable with using the microscope on your own, you will be given regular user privileges.
Image Analysis - We can help you analyze your data more efficiently by developing image analysis and processing tools.
After you are a fully independent user, you can request technical assistance when necessary (e.g. for troubleshooting, new settings, etc.)
If you do not book a microscope for assisted sessions within 1 week after training, you may need to be trained again
If you do not use a microscope for more than 3 months, we may contact you to assess the need for re-training
If you misuse a microscope or fail to follow turn on/off procedures, you will be re-trained and go back to Assisted Use
We are always available for consultations and advice on all things related to microscopy. Feel free to contact us
