How to access the Bumblebee system
If you want to use the equipment on this list you must book your time on the Bumblebee calendar.
Fees are charged to cover equipment running costs and maintenance.
You must have a Bumblebee account which includes the equipment you want to use before you are trained or have any access to the equipment.
Before you begin using a Bumblebee instrument you must meet with the Instrument Supervisor to discuss the feasibility of your proposed experiments and arrange appropriate training.
You must receive permission from your supervisor to pay for the cost of training and instrument usage.
Some laboratories require that you are given a laboratory induction before you are allowed access to that instrument; you must allow time for the induction.
Please also note: Some training is organised externally to the Department so you must allow plenty of time before you can expect to start your experiments.

After you have been trained, you can make your bookings yourself using your standard project.
If you need to delete your booking you need to contact the instrument supervisor.
