The MCZ micro-CT system and associated 3D analysis workstation are only available to MCZ department or lab personnel who are trained on the system by the factory-trained representative of their department or lab. Additionally, all users will need to schedule a short DIF procedures and EH&S safety training by sending an email to MCZ Collections Operations.

Scheduling for both the micro-CT system and the 3D analysis workstation is handled through an online scheduling tool, which is accessed with a user’s Research Computing credentials; details are given during training.
