Sample Acceptation Criteria and Pricing

Researchers using Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy Laboratory Should Pay Attention to…

  1. Take an appointment from the responsible expert
  2. Fill the application form before analysis
  3. Analysis hours on weekdays are between 08.30-12.30 and 13.30-17.30.
  4. Researcher may accompany lab manager research associate in laboratory during the analysis.
  5. Potential risk factors which carry pathogens (e.g. bacteria, virus etc) will be rejected to the microscopy laboratory.
  6. Samples must not be harmful to human health and the environment.
  7. It must be given detailed information of risky samples to the lab supervisor before the study.
  8. Samples must be delivered to the laboratory on proper conditions. Ask information from lab supervisor for proper contidions.
  9. All responsibility of samples including storage and transportation until being brought to the laboratory is researcher’ responsibility.
  10. If needs, preliminary treatments for samples (e.g. drying, fixation etc.) must be made by researcher before being brought to the laboratory. Otherwise, sample will analyze as it stands.
  11. Samples brought to the laboratory must store in lightproof conditions. Proper transportation and storage of the samples are under the researcher’s responsibility.
  12. Deformated samples in any way (e.g. cracked, scratched, broken, dirty, etc.) will not accepted for analysis.
  13. Samples must be clearly coded by researcher. The samples having proper codes will be only used during reporting.
  14. Researcher must inform lab supervisor for the wavelength ranges of excitation and emission of flourophores that will use. Contact with lab supervisor for further information.
  15. Daily using period of confocal microscopy is for four hours due to the conditions for affecting human health negatively.
  16. Analysis period for a typical sample needs immersion oil is 15 minutes.
  17. Charges are ……TL sample/hours.
  18. Get in contact with the laboratory supervisor while appealing for getting information on samples, analysis conditions and process.
  19. Get in contact with Emrah Yücesan on for any advice.
