Parking Information


There will be a FREE Zeiss 510 confocal training workshop next Thursday July 31st from 9am to noon in Keen 1007.  This is the least busy of the three point scanning confocals. It has a convenient automated microscope body and some built in 3D imaging capability.  It is a bit less sensitive than the Leicas but takes excellent images.


Please contact dcarter@ucr.edu to reserve a space.


In other news, the arc lamp sometimes fails to light on the Leica inverted SP5.  Please leave it on between sessions during a day, so its start up and shut down cycles are reduced.  A replacement has been ordered, but delivery date is unknown.


Also, there have been complaints about instruments being left in an unexpected configuration.  As a courtesy to other users, please leave instruments in their normal settings when you are finished.


Many thanks,
