UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health


Confocal microscopy core facility

Using the facility

The facility is open to Institute of Child Health (ICH), Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), UCL and external users. All users are required to book on-line using our online booking systems. To register for booking contact Dale. All instruments are available on first-come first-served basis.

To access the facility, ICH and GOSH users will need to have access authorised on their swipe card. Please email Dale Moulding your swipe card number. UCL and external users will need to call Dale to access the facility.

The facility microscopes may only be used by those who have been trained by facility staff. Users who can demonstrate previous experience with similar microscopes may not need full training (at the discretion of facility staff) but will still need to be shown the cleaning procedures and have the rules of use of the facility explained.

Users are welcome to book training sessions to learn how to use the microscopes correctly. Training can be given at any time when booked in advance.
