2017-01-10 (Zeiss LSM 700 Confocal): Zeiss LSM700 moving down the hall to Biophysics B3

The Microscope Facility Zeiss LSM700 will be relocated to Biophysics B3, just down the hall from its current location (Physiology G09) to make way for the new Zeiss GaAsP confocal. We anticipate that the 700 system will be offline from 10am-2pm Thursday (1/12) and again on Friday morning (1/13).

All certified 700 users will have access to the new room which has 24/7 swipe access. Please remember to have your badge when you come to image on the 700.

More information about transitioning users to the new microscope system, Zeiss GaAsP, will be posted soon. Thank you for your cooperation.
