Microscope Facility News & Equipment Status
Meta 2 is back up and running! Maintenance images look great! Even brighter than they were before!
Please let email firstname.lastname@example.org if you experience any issues with the system in the coming days so we can be sure that the issue is fixed.|
The detectors on Meta 2 are not receiving data from the microscope so no image is appearing on the screen. We have called the service technician and he is ordering parts. He should be getting back to to us with an estimated date to fix the microscope by the end of the day or early tomorrow with an estimated day to fix the microscope.
Reservations for today will be canceled and reservations for tomorrow will be canceled in the morning.
Please email email@example.com with any questions and we will post updates as we get them.
Thanks for your cooperation and patience.|
Starting this weekend Meta 2 has been coming up with some transmission mirror errors at start up and while imaging. The scope is completely usable except for this message popping up every time you start and stop an image.
We were able to use white light and fluorescent light to find the sample through the eye pieces and was able to image using the lasers and the DIC mode. The issue has been called into Zeiss and we expect them to come out to fix it later this week or early next week.
Again, the scope appears to work perfectly fine other than the annoying message popping up at the bottom every image.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you experience any other issues or if other error messages come up.|
