Complete regulations: Microscopy Regulations

Summary of regulations

All interested users must attend the appropriate courses in the handling of apparatus before they will be allowed to use the apparatus independently.

  • Centre personnel are allowed to monitor the user in the safe usage of apparatus to prevent damage or perhaps personal injuries by taking preventive actions in misuse, also by giving friendly advice.
  • Users are requested to make reservations for any apparatus to prevent a clash of interests. This will allow personnel to prepare equipment and prevent parallel user requirements when personnel have to attend to more than one apparatus.
  • Intellectual property of centre personnel. The user must prepare beforehand through self-study of literature in the application of techniques and results interpretation.
    • If results have to be interpreted by personnel on request from the user, appropriate recognition must be given according to the centre's regulation document.
    • The user retains the right to determine the level of involvement by personnel to the project (refer to complete regulations document paragraph 4), which always remains graciously negotiable.
