MICR - Microscopy & Imaging

 

MICR Core Website

 

MICR Core Policies

 

Resources are available on a first call, first served basis.

 

  • Appointments may not be scheduled greater than 2 weeks in advance. The microscopes book rapidly, so you must plan accordingly.
  • Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
  • Missed appointments will result in usage charges to the principal investigator, regardless of core membership.
  • Your appointment is considered a no-show after 30 minutes of your scheduled time has elapsed, and your time will be given to the next person on the stand-by list. Please call if you will be late and arrangements will be made.
  • Minimum time charged is one hour.
  • Clients are responsible for securing and storing their own data. Please inquire about storage space on our UNIX server. The MICR server is the primary method for file transfer at MICR.

 

Citing MICR Core

 

All MICR Core users are required to cite the MICR Core in publications featuring MICR Core work. When citing this facility in your publications:

 

  • In the Materials/Methods section, please mention that your confocal work was done at the Microscopy, Imaging and Cytometry Resources Core at Wayne State University, School of Medicine
  • Under Acknowledgements, please include the following sentence:
