MIL Users: IMPORTANT MESSAGE from October 31, 2013
Our server that runs all of the instrumentation and scheduling system, has been compromised by an outside hacker, and it has been shut down for security reasons. We're not sure if any of your passwords have been affected. At least for the short term, we are without any way to look at the scheduling system or allow you to log in to use the instrumentation but we are working on a fix for this that may take a few days. In the meantime, we are disabling the log in scheme that you are all used to and ask that you log in your time on paper sheets that will be provided to you on each instrument.
All instruments at BSRB and NCRC are up and ready for use.
To make an appointment, please call or stop by and sign up on the reservation sheets.
We're working this as fast as possible. If you have any problems, please contact any MIL staff member to assist you.
We apologize for the inconveniences this may cause.
Chris Edwards, Manager
Established in 1978, the Microscopy and Image Analysis Laboratory (MIL) is a centralized operation including more than 3,000 square feet housing major equipment, used on a shared basis by investigators focusing mainly on studies of cell and tissue morphology and ultrastructure. It offers state-of-the-art equipment for microscopic imaging, including fluorescence microscopy, as well as scanning and transmission electron microscopy.
The MIL is a fee-for-service-based operation open to researchers from all departments within the University of Michigan, other institutions, and the industrial research community. In 2013, MIL joined the Biomedical Research Core Facilities, part of the Office of Research in the University of Michigan Medical School.
