Working with housekeeping and our waste hauler, we have begun a pilot project in 3 locations to see if this is possible. If successful the programme will be expanded in the near future.
For basic equipment the manuals can be found here. For complex instruments specialty training is required and is often experiment-specific and not amenable to creating SOPs. Please contact the RCF Specialist for individual training. Similarly, experimental protocols can be found throughout the Core Facility pages.
Later this summer, there will be an audit of the meeting rooms. Chairs that have been moved out of the meeting rooms will be retrieved and missing/broken furniture and waste bins will be replaced.
There is a current CFI application which includes a fluorescent and bright field slide scanner, a flow cytometer and a cryostat in review. We will hear about the results this upcoming winter (2017/2018).
A list of all of the equipment available in Vivarium can be found on the RFBMS website.
Like other institutions, our training is unique to our specific work environment. Our policies and procedures must be followed, so indicated mandatory training courses (biosafety, cell culture, cryogenics, etc.,) are required to all new trainees and staff at the KRCBS.
