Lab Use & Scheduling

EMAL has a very large number of users from across the university, from local industry and from other neighboring universities. In order to try and keep the laboratory operating in optimum condition there are strict rules of operation. Each user is required to register with the laboratory and provide contact information and the method of payment for the use of the facility.

There are frequent training sessions for each of the instruments and the staff will do their very best to help new users get up to speed on the operation of the instruments and the analysis and interpretation of data. In order to get a good basic understanding of how the use the facility, it is recommended that each new user read through the pages in this section. In fact, reading this material often saves unnecessary email messages to the staff, who will often refer you to these pages for the information requested.
