All University affiliated users for SEM, TEM and confocal microscopes must make a reservation in order for anyone in the group to conveniently use the microscopes and to better manage the microscopes. Before users first schedule a microscope, you must be added to the MMRL user list. This can be done by contacting the Director, Laying Wu. You will receive a confirmation email once you’ve been added.
