2019-12-10 (Hitachi 7600 TEM,Leo FESEM,Philips CM120 TEM): EM Microscopes shut down from 3pm Wed, Dec 11 to 12pm Thur, Dec 12.

Facilities has just informed us that the water to the Basic Science cluster has to be shut down early Thursday morning. That means all of our EM microscopes will be shut down from Wednesday afternoon to Thursday afternoon (Dec 11-12). We anticipate that the water will be running again by Thursday afternoon and that we can turn the scopes back on by then. If you have a reservation for Thursday morning, it has been canceled.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
