Instrument user guides

First-time users

Before using any of the instruments, you need to receive a brief training. The length of the training depends on your previous experience and the instrument complexity.

The training fee is indicated on the price list for each instrument.

Trained users

Once you have been trained, you will be able to operate the instruments on your own. We created a series of Quick Start documents to help you remember the basics of each instrument, as well as detailed user guides, and manufacturer instructions. All these resources are also available on the instrument pages.


Remember: these documents are not a substitute for training. You need to receive training before you can reserve time on a new instrument.
