LMIC Kiosk

Features of the Instrument

The iLab kiosk is a tool we will be using to control and track usage of the LMIC microscopes. It will automatically record “no-shows” and make the time available to other users. It is cell phone compatible.

The kiosk will control power to the monitor of each system. The microscope will work only after the user clicks start in the kiosk. Click start to begin, finish to end. Users will still need to sign-in/sign-out of the old software to transfer images.

Timing:

  • Users can start up to 60 min before the reserved time if scope is unused.
  • Users have 60 min past the end of reserved.
  • Users will be considered a no-show and reservation will be cancelled 30 min after reserved start time.
