Facilities requests

If facilities are needed to perform some sample processes, it should be clearly stated in advance to the Local Contact, once scientists receive their invitation, or on the A-form when submitting and if scientists already know the site and facilities offered.

EMBL users facilities

If you wish to use EMBL facility you must return this form (word) by email to the EMBL and the ESRF, one month before you need to use the facility, and read all recommendations (first page of the EMBL form) provided by the EMBL safety officer.  Once basic equipment is available, e.g.:

Off line experiments in facilities like cryobench

Some facilities not directly related to beamlines may be subject to declaration, as for example the Cryobench.  Samples used for such experiments should be declared to the Safety Group for validation using a Sample Sheet as previously described and sent to mail.gif (Mail). These off-line experiments are subject to “on line” internal regulations i.e. Users' Safety Training validated.
