Booking and Training

Please email Claire at to set up a training or request microscope time. Before we can accept your sample for either screening or data collection, you must submit a project request form to allow us to assess feasibility of the project.


  • The Vitrobot is available for 2 sessions per day, either 9 a.m. -12 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Users must be finished with the Vitrobot by the end of their session time so it can defrost and dry for the next user.
  • If the user is not finished with the Vitrobot on time they will be charged for two sessions.
  • There will be one screening session per day.

Booking is managed through iLab via the Life Sciences Institute Imaging. You will need to request an iLab account to be able to book. Krios booking requests will be confirmed by the facility. Vitrobot booking is available for trained users.

After booking a screening session, confirm how many grids you will be screening by submitting an AutoGrid request in the iLab ‘Request Services’ tab.

Use the iLab ‘Request Services’ tab to request training.
