2017-10-13 (Zeiss LSM 510-meta #2): Zeiss 510-meta, computer/network issue, scope inoperable

The 510 computer operation system is corrupted and unrepairable by the Zeiss engineer. We are looking into other options (using a spare computer) and other attempts (BSNO service). Both are in action, but neither will be completed before next Monday.

2017-10-13 (Olympus Station 1 (inverted)): Olympus 1 (inverted): controller box not working, in repair until Mon Oct 16

The Olympus inverted microscope system is unavailable until Mon, Oct 16. It appears that liquid, which was spilled on the controller, leaked down into the electronic circuit board. This may have been causing a malfunction in the operation of the microscope. Scot has cleaned off the circuit board and will reinstall it when it is completely dry. I am sorry for last minute notice and for any inconvenience to you all.
