Users from schools outside Biosciences

1. Users should contact the Bioimaging Unit to discuss their requirements and arrange a booking. An estimate of cost will be provided by the Unit.

2. Users must then contact their School Finance Office to obtain an Internal Purchase Order number. This will then be emailed to the Bioimaging Unit and must be received prior to the booking.

3. The work is then undertaken at the agreed time and a job sheet is completed containing the final details of the job along with the actual cost.

4. Users will receive their data at the end of the session but then MUST contact their School Finance Office to notify them that the work has been completed so that funds can be transferred. Please note that users will not be permitted to make further bookings if there are any payments still outstanding. It is therefore essential that the user's Finance Office are notified as quickly as possible following the completion of a booking.


Time course studies: 

Long-term time course studies should be undertaken outside of normal working hours. For a quotation of charges please contact the Academic Supervisor of the Unit.
