  • All microscopes can be booked online according to our general rules.
    • High end microscopes may not be used for optimisation of staining procedures etc, checking the expression levels of GFP etc.

Usage dependent fees will be invoiced to the budget holders based on the online booking system.

  • Why do we have to pay fees?
    • Fees are required to cover direct and indirect costs of the microscopes.
    • Fees are subject to observation and revision by the rectorate of MUI.
