For more information about the LMACS system, visit the documentation site.
In order to access any of the equipment or services of the nanoFAB you must first become a registered LMACS user. To become a registered user follow the steps outlined in this guide.
The registration process is broken up into the following steps:
The first step creates your user account within the system. This step collects some basic information. If you enter a CCID - do not enter your ID number - this should be the first part of your U of A email - i.e.: email@example.com
The second step is used to verify your email. An activation link is sent to the email address entered above. Clicking the link will activate your account.
Your account will switch to “Active” in LMACS. This will generate another email which will provide you with your username and temporary password.
This section contains two possible paths - most Users will follow 2a. This means that you are joining an existing group / project. If this is the case, you will need to know both your group (PI) name and the name of the project you want to join before completing this section.
If you are a PI attempting to create a new Group, that is you will be financially responsible for work in the nanoFAB, and plan to register students or employees under your project, then you will follow 2b.
If you are creating a new Group & Project - review the terms and conditions for creating a new group, and click Create New Group, and follow the next step.
|This section should only be used by PI's or Company representatives who will be financially responsible for charges occurred in the nanoFAB. DO NOT COMPLETE THIS STEP OTHERWISE.|
A one-time $200 administrative fee is charged for all new registrants. If you are a Principal Investigator (PI) wishing to create a new group, this can be done upon activation of your account.
Once you've activated and configured your account, you are ready to create your first LMACS request. Welcome to the nanoFAB!
