Existing MCEM Users: Change of Project/Material/Additional Training

  1. Fill in the MCEM Project Request Form.
  2. You will be contacted to discuss changes.

Please note that due to the heavy demand for MCEM facilities and for training, it is very difficult for the Centre to accommodate urgent requests. At times the wait to commence training can exceed one month for the SEMs and TEMs and it may take longer than two weeks before samples can be examined by a MCEM staff member.

Upcoming New Project Meeting Dates

Applicants to use MCEM facilities are interviewed after receipt of the New Project Request Form. The next New Project Meetings will be held on:

  • Tuesday 10th September, 2019
  • Tuesday 8th October, 2019
  • Tuesday 12th November, 2019

Applications must be received 10 days prior to the meeting dates above to allow sufficient time for processing. Applications received after this time will be scheduled for the following month's meetings.
