Before each use of any of our microscopes or computer workstation you need to do an on-line reservation.
Please be aware that cancellations done 3 hours before the planned slot will still be possible but they will be charged 50% of the corresponding fee.
If you are not an independent user yet or think you need help for a new application, please call or write us to make sure someone will be available to help you. You can also request assistance on the booking page of each microscope.
