How to become user at the microscopy facility

- contact the ALMF supervisor (Dr. Thomas Korte) for a consultation on your project to identify the correct microscopy technique, respectively instrument, and discuss issues of sample preparation and staining

- print the “ALMF Guidelines” and confirm their acceptance

- fill in a short questionnaire (“ALMF project submission form”), which contains a short project description and a declaration about biological and chemical safety hazards, and have it signed by their responsible group leader

- autonomous measurements on an instrument require the users to receive two training sessions with the ALMF supervisor (Dr. Thomas Korte) at the respective instrument.

    The first training session is an instrument specific instruction based on only a few of your own samples.

    The second one comprises the first scientific experiment under supervision of the ALMF supervisor.

- Afterwards you are permitted to book appointments and measure on your own.
