To request access to the BIDC's microscope, please follow the steps below:

  1. Read and understand our Policies and Procedures 
  2. PI's must sign and email a copy of the BIDC Policy form to the BIDC at bidc@ucsf.edu
  3. Fill out the BIDC User Request Form to tell us a little about your imaging project.

Upon receipt of the form, we will schedule a time to talk about what you would like to do and how to get started. Once samples are ready and an instrument is chosen, we will conduct a 3-4 hour training session (sometimes broken into two sessions) on the microscope. We can then assist as the project matures and/or new projects emerge.
