[Dorigny] LSM 880 out of order
The Zeiss LSM 880 confocal microscope at the Genopode, Dorigny, is currently out of order.
The Zeiss technician has been notified and we will schedule a repair as soon as possible, in principle during next week.
At the moment, it appears that the RTC has to be replaced if it can’t be restarted again. However, since this model doesn’t exist anymore, a full PC replacement including a built-in RTC might have to be ordered, which will take more time.
Dorigny’s technical manager and the Zeiss technician will work on a solution as fast as they can.
We will keep you informed of the progress in fixing this issue.
In the meantime, I will leave the bookings from today onwards in place until the repair is done, in order for you to be able to use the system as soon as it is back online.
The CIF staff will remove the unused slots afterwards to prevent invoicing unused slots. This should prevent too many rescheduling on your part.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
