A reservation in VU C.O.R.E.S. is required for this device and billing is done automatically through the system.

Although the VU C.O.R.E.S. reservation says that you will be billed “Per Hour”, you will only be billed  per reservation.

Please go to the VBI C.O.R.E.S webpage for instructions on setting up a C.O.R.E.S. account if you do not have one.

There are common usage blades for the sliding microtome located in the Emeson Lab. Please see Kathleen Patterson in 8148 MRB3 to request blade usage.

These shared VBI blades can only be used for frozen tissue sectioning! If you would like to section tissue embedded with a harder substance such as epoxy, you are required to purchase your own blade from Leica.
