A user registration is required before the start of Electron Microscopy Core Imaging Facility services. Registered users will be assigned an EMCIF account number, user ID, password and a designated image folder allocated on the EMCIF image server. The same password will be required to access the EMCIF image server, scope reservation calendar and scope operation software. For administration purposes, user accounts are set up by research groups. Users from one research group share the same image folder, account number and password. A one time registration fee of $50 will be applicable.
Registration is simple. Fill out all the required information on the registration form online. Please note that we will not be able to process registration forms with missing information. Once your registration is completed, you will receive a confirmation email with your account number, user ID and password within a few days.
In order to set up each account for billing, please provide the principal investigator's (PI) name and the UMB chart string PCBU and Project ID.
Please also provide at least one daytime phone number so facility staff can reach you when specific questions arise regarding your sample and processing procedures. It is also recommend that UMB users use UMB email addresses for registration and communication with EMCIF. This is to ensure your communications to CIF will not be screened into your junk email box.
If you would like to be included in the EMCIF mailing list to receive facility news and event announcements, please send an email to EMCIF with "EMCIF mailing list" in the subject line.
