*Training sessions usually 2 hours. For example training on the LSM 780 or the SP8 confocal will therefore cost 2x22 € (instrument) + 2x25 € (training) = 94 € for a two-hour session for an internal academic user.

Zeiss LSM 780, LSM 880, LSM 7 MP, Leica SP8, SP8 X and Nikon Eclipse TiE

If you are the last user of the day and you leave the lasers and/or lamp on, you will be charged for the whole time the lasers are on.

Zeiss Axio Imagers

If you are the last user of the day and your reservation ends at or after 4pm and you leave the lamp on, you will be charged for the whole time the lamp is on.

All BIU instruments

If you are using any of the BIU instrument during weekend/holiday/outside office hours and you leave the lasers or lamps on, you will be charged for the whole time the lasers/lamps are on.

Use without a reservation

Use without a reservation is prohibited. BIU will occasionally check room entrance and/or computer log in/out times. If they do not match with the time reserved, there will be a double fee for the time the instrument was used without a reservation.

Instrument is not working

If there is a technical problem with the equipment that clearly affects its use, there will be no charge, provided that you inform BIU about the problem within a reasonable time.
