In order to become a User of one of the Imaging and Analysis Facility tools you must first be enrolled as a CNS/NNIN User.
In order to get specific tool training, first go to the CNS Training Sign-Up page. Most of the major instrumentation trainings are done via online sign-up. If you do not see a particular training online, please contact the CNS staff member in charge of that facility/tool and arrange for training or assistance. To determine which staff member you should contact, please consult the Facilities section of the site. If you still cannot determine which staff member you should contact, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Imaging and Analysis facilities/tools are located in rooms that require card reader access. For Harvard Users, the HUID is used as the access card and is automatically updated upon completion of training. Non-Harvard Users must go to the CNS Administrative Office (LISE 306) in order to obtain a CNS Facilities Access Card prior to the training if you have not been issued one previously. For non-Harvard Users, a LISE Card Reader Access Form must be turned in to the CNS Administrative Office (LISE 306) in order to obtain an access card. Access cards will only be issued to those who have completed their enrollment in the CNS/NNIN User Program.
Please see the Forms page of the User Info section of the website for the LISE Card Reader Access Form.
The Imaging Sample Prep. Room, LISE B15A, has a pre-requisite of a special safety orientation required in order to obtain training on specific instrumentation within this room. If you need training on instrumentation in this sample preparation room and you do not see a B15A Safety Training listed on the CNS Training Sign-Up page, simply e-mail email@example.com to request a date and time for this training.
Please read the General User Information and Policy area of the User Info section of the website as it contains additional important information for CNS facility users.
