Equipment Scheduling and Use

Training and Use

The more advanced IPN research equipment requires training before use, to help protect the user and equipment and to help provide the most benefit to the research.  The Leica confocal microscopes, the Caliper IVIS live imager, and the Sable Prometheon metabolic system are some examples of such equipment with pre-requisite training requirements.

Please contact IPN Equipment Coordinator to request training and for assistance on any of our shared equipment.


The majority of the IPN shared equipment is reserved through an online reservation system. A few pieces of advanced equipment are scheduled through arranged meetings. Please contact the IPN equipment coordinator with any questions or for instructions on accessing the online reservation system
