Scheduling


The Molecular Foundry's Instrument Scheduler allows approved users to schedule instrument time for given month beginning at 12:01 a.m. on the 15th day of the preceding month for all instrumentation except except TitanX, TEAM 0.5 and TEAM I, which must be directly scheduled per instructions on grid below. Cancellations within 24 hours of scheduled instrument time will not be accepted and be counted as a session.

Core: To qualify as an approved user, you must demonstrate competence by passing a “Core Driving Test” for each instrument to be operated. In addition you must have a valid authorization from your NCEM scientific contact.

Flex: To qualify, you must pass a “Flex Driving Test” and also have authorization to get after-hours access from your NCEM scientific contact.

One session at a time means that you must use the session before signing up for additional sessions.
