General guidelines
  1. If you haven't used our new instruments yet and are planning to do so, do not hesitate to contact Jari (jari.sinkkonen@utu.fi) before proceeding!
  2. Do not overbook. Consider how much time you will need for your experiments carefully. Avoid booking the same instrument for several consecutive days in a week.
  3. Avoid long experiments during working hours, do them preferably overnight or during the weekend.
  4. Be on time! If the person who has made the reservation hasn’t started during 15 minutes from the start of his/her reservation, anyone is free to use the instrument for the first hour of the missed reservation. If the experiment is not started during the first hour of the reservation, anyone is free to use the instrument for the remainder of the reservation.
  5. Cancel or shorten your reservation immediately if you do not need it, someone else might.
After your reservation
  1. Fill the logbook!
  2. Clean the table.
  3. Liquid state probe must be switched back, if a solid state probe has been used.
  4. Instrument temperature should be at 298 K, if non-standard temperatures have been used.
