Jenkins Microscopy Facility

Dear Microscopy Facility users:
Starting Monday, June 1, 2020, the Microscopy Facility is partially open for access to its equipment. For your own safety, and the safety of others, please follow the following practices.
1. Online signup is required before anyone can use the microscope. Signup must be at least 3 hours before the actual signup time, so the facility staff can make preparation.
2. Only one person can work in a microscope room at a time.
3. Mask wearing is required when social distancing is not possible.
4. Computer mouse and keyboard, as well as the computer desk must be wiped with 75% ethanol before and after use.
Contact Dr. Zhaojie Zhang for questions!
Thank you for your understanding,
Jenkins Microscopy Facility Management
