Confocal Booking

The calendar below shows current bookings for the Confocal Microscope.

Availability of support is indicated on the calendar.


Please check the availability of the confocal microscope via the online calendar before making a booking. Please note that you cannot book the confocal on-line, only check availability. Users with a Google Account may be able to obtain permission to make their own bookings. Contact the unit to discuss this.

To make a booking please contact Dr. Tony Hayes (; ex 76611), Marc Isaacs ( or Claire Gealy (

You will need to provide full contact details (name, telephone, email address, etc.) together with the time slot required for your confocal session. It will be assumed that you will use the DM6000 upright microscope unless you specify that you require the inverted system. Your booking will then be entered on the on-line booking form.

Please keep to your allotted time - you will be charged from the time your booking starts, not from when you eventually turn up.

Please see the Guidance section (under Rules & Regulations) regarding specimen preparation for confocal microscopy before bringing your samples over.

CANCELLATIONS: If you wish to cancel a confocal booking you must give 24 hours advance notification. If you fail to do this, without good reason, you will be charged for your booking.

Google Account Users - Google Calendars allows for the use of the calendar from various smartphones as well as the ability to import the booking calendar into your own personal calendar for quick reference. 

Details of supported phones and instructions can be found here:

You may also import the school seminars calendars into your personal calendar to check for possible clashes with bookings. These calendars are found at and can be imported into your personal Google Account via the link in the bottom-right of the calendar view.
