Online booking

To use our online booking system you will first need to register (preferably with your CRSid if you have one).

To book a microscope you will then need to be trained to use it. Please fill out a training request form for the relevant microscope if you think you will require it.

Finally we will require you to register your project details which you will be using the microscope for.

Once you have registered, been trained and logged your project details you will be free to book the microscopes when they are available.

Please book through our online booking service.
