COVID-19 Considerations

Important updates to COVID-19 precautions:

  1. The BOC is now able to train new users on the confocal! New users must create an iLab account (see this link for more details on registering an iLab account) and reserve a two hour timeslot anytime M-F between 9 AM and 5 PM.
  2. There are now multiple tutorial videos primarily aimed at using the confocal, but also relevant for using NIS-Elements generally. You can find the videos on the main BOC website here.
  3. The BOC is once again open all day Sunday through Saturday for trained users.
  4. Same-day reservations are available once again. A 15-minute buffer will be added to each reservation to give previous users time to vacate the microscope room.

The BOC has reopened. Please read the usage guidelines below before making a reservation.
