Reservation and Billing

Reservation and Billing Site

In order to offer the best services and maintain equipment in excellent condition for shared use at the Noel T. Keen Instrumentation Facility, please follow the steps below.

  • Please read Facilities Regulations carefully before using the instrumentation facilities and services at Noel T. Keen Hall.
  • Training is required to understand the basic operation procedures of any instrument. Please see the IIGB Calendar for upcoming scheduled training workshops and seminars.
  • If the use of IIGB instrumentation is required after business hours, please have your principal investigator complete and sign a Fob Authorization Form. The appropriate instrumentation core managers must also sign this form to verify training has been completed.
  • All Keen Hall equipment and services must be requested and billed through the IIGB Instrumentation Facilities Services and Billing Site. Principal Investigators will receive monthly statements based on equipment reservation times and/or calculated rates on submitted service forms. In order to ensure an instrument's availability, it is prudent to reserve equipment in advance; however, a computer will be available in each core for login to the site and for entering and modifying usage times.
  • To use the IIGB Instrumentation Facilities Services and Billing Site:
    • You must have a login email address and password to access the site. If you are registering for the first time, use the Click Here to Register link on the reservation page and complete all fields. Please select your principal investigator from the pulldown menu.  If your PI is not listed, please have him/her contact genomics@ucr.edu.
    • You will receive an email regarding confirmation of your registration.  Please wait one-day before using the application while permissions are being entered.  Should you need additional permissions (instruments are grayed out), please contact the appropriate Core Manager.
    • Upon accessing the site, please click on the "Start Here" link in the left sidebar. A list will appear of all instruments and services available in the four instrumentation core facilities: Microscopy, Genomics, Bioinformatics and Proteomics (sorted by column headings). The list may indicate that you need to "Contact a Core" -- this is because a discussion is needed first with the Core manager to best determine your research needs.
    • You must select or add an FAU in order to reserve an instrument or request a service. Please ask your principal investigator for a billing account number and add it if one is not provided.
    • You will be billed according to the time indicated on the reservation calendar. You will not be able to alter the reservation after the session has ended. For questions regarding billing, please contact genomics@ucr.edu.
    • Reservations from all users will be color coded, but you will only be able to edit your reservations. You can, however, click on other reservations to view contact information.
    • Some instruments have a 24-hour cancellation policy (i.e., Leica SP5), which is indicated in the Notes section of the reservation form. You cannot change or make a reservation within this period, and will be billed for time reserved on the calendar. If an instrument is available within this period and you would like to reserve it, please contact the Core Manager.
