Equipment reservations can only be cancelled by a nanoFAB staff member. This is to avoid equipment monopolization practices and ensure that there is fair access to equipment. When working in the nanoFAB, it is important to plan your workflow and book equipment in such a manner as to avoid overbooking equipment "just in case". That being said, there are often a number of circumstances that can arise which necessitate the legitimate cancellation of a piece of equipment (previous process step failure, equipment maintenance, etc..). In these cases, follow the procedure below to request a cancellation.
Short notice cancellations, or failing to use a booking may result in charges as outlined in the Booking Cancellation Policy.
All booking cancellations must be submitted through LMACS, emails sent directly to staff members will be ignored.
|On certain high-demand instruments, an automatic notification will be generated to let other users know that the equipment is now available. You should cancel with sufficient notice that other users may take advantage of the time.|
As an open access centre, the nanoFAB strives to provide equal access to all Users. Booking monopolization techniques are not allowed. As such, there may be a penalty associated with repeated cancellations, or last minute cancellations ( less than 24 hrs ) - see Booking Cancellation Policy for details.
