AMMRF - Linked Laboratories

Linked Laboratories

A Linked Laboratory is a mini-node of the AMMRF, providing access to specialist instruments at an institution or organisation external to the principal nodes, e.g. an institution within the university sector or some relevant part of a PFRA.

A Centre Microscopist facilitates access to the laboratory, acting as the principal point of contact for Australian researchers who would like to access the facilities and provide support and advice to users throughout the planning, measurement and analysis phases.
