Training & Workshops
It is important to discuss your needs with us at a New User Meeting with an Adelaide Microscopy staff member to make sure the right techniques are used to achieve maximum results. We will also advise you on sample preparation needs as this can be the most time consuming aspect of your microscopy and is quite often the most important as it will affect your end result.
Qualified Adelaide Microscopy staff are responsible for training all users for all instruments and laboratory procedures. A training session will usually take 1-3 hours. A four hour booking is advised for the initial session which allows additional time to examine your own samples. It is important that you have your samples ready for examination ie. prepared, mounted and coated. Please allow three business days for any type of sample coating.
For the purposes of training, a standard sample is used. Training is charged at the hourly rate depending on funding type. For example students will be charged at the student rate for that instrument.
Specific training courses are also offered by Adelaide Microscopy upon request and have been developed in the following areas: Microanalysis, Cryo SEM/TEM, Analytical Techniques, Microtomy, Light & Confocal Microscopy etc.
