More details about facility procedures:

The AIR like all other IGMM services works core hours 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Out of hours assistance is available upon request in advance

We ask that

  • You are trained by facility staff when you use a new piece of equipment

  • You follow our SOP’s when using equipment including leaving the equipment and surroundings clean and tidy as you would hope to find it

  •  You book equipment use for yourself only and not on behalf of others

  • You have risk assessments for your work on Q-Pulse

  • You let facility staff know directly or via a PPMS Incident Report if you have a problem with the equipment or there is an accident

  • You transfer your data to networked storage within 6 months of acquiring it    

Training: Facility users need to be trained on each new modality they use. Please see here for this. Each webpage represents a modality, so if you already are already trained to use an upright microscope (e.g. Britemac) you don't need training to use another one (e.g. Macred) but you would need training to use a confocal. Please request training via the training request form below. The AIR staff are employed to support AIR equipment. We can, at our discretion advise about non AIR equipment but are not obliged to provide support. The workshop are able to provide support for equipment repairs and can be contacted here.
