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.
At NCEM, daytime use is defined as instrument sessions booked from 9am to 5pm on weekdays, when staff are available to assist users. “Afterhours” sessions are defined as sessions booked after 5pm on weekdays and any time during weekends, holidays, or other days where staff are not present.
Daytime use: New users will take two training sessions and pass a sample exchange exam to acquire a Core driver license, to work independently during daytime sessions.
Afterhours use: Permission to schedule afterhours sessions is given at the discretion of the staff member in charge of the instrument. Afterhours training is typically initiated by staff, after demonstrated expertise and independent operation by the user. Afterhours access is granted on a per-instrument basis, and can be revoked at any time. Unauthorized afterhours use can result in loss of daytime access.
Note that afterhours building access to building 72 must be requested separately.
