To gain access to the computers on the instruments you have reserved, you must have a HYAD-username and AD -permissions. For instructions go to Fees and user policy page.
When you enter the New User Registration page, you should fill in all fields (except for alternate email) according to these instructions:
If you selected "Other...Unlisted" for department or for principal investigator, you can now write the name(s). if you are going to work using funding from several sources check that these have PIs and accounts. You can choose which to use when reserving time.May 7, 2013, follow the instructions given below (Reserving time on an instrument). After that, you need to press "Send Access Request" -button. You will receive an e-mail when your request has been processed. This may take some time, so make your first reservation well in advance.
If you do not receive the e-mail, or you need the reservation in a hurry, please contact BIU personnel directly.
All other instruments except the Imaging Workstations and the microscopes of the MCB and GSB research programs have a mandatory training session. Ask the BIU staff for a time for the training session. After the training, you will be added as a user for that instrument and can start reserving time on it.
To enter the New User Registration page, go to: http://scheduler.miu-support.org/register.php?to=
Find the instrument in the list of available instruments.
When making a reservation, the following information must be given:
Reservations can be made 14 days in advance, except for confocals and CellInsight (21 days in advance).
For confocals and CellInsight, cancellation deadline is 2 hours prior to reserved time. If you need to cancel your reservation for the other microscopes, please do so as early as possible. If you are already past the 2 hour limit and need to cancel a session, please contact the BIU staff. Likewise contact us directly also for other requests (either directly via the contact information on the home pages or via biu-support at helsinki dot fi). The scheduler does contain automated systems for e-mailing the administrator but these do not always work in a reliable manner.
If you need more time than you reserved, do not use the "Extend session" button. Create a new session instead. Of course this is possible only if there is a free time slot after your reservation.
The Scheduler software has a way of automatically notifying users when free times come available.
