Cleanroom Introduction Course

You need the "Cleanroom Introduction and Safety course" to be able to enter the cleanroom and to get access to the LIMS booking system. The registration to this course is done at this site
which will also create your personal account in the LIMS, our webbased booking system. The account will be activated only after the actual participation of the Cleanroom course lectures. At the course date there will also be a guided tour through the labs, to show and demonstrate the dressing procedures and some of the safety and emergency installations on site.

The course is given typically once per month during autumn and spring semester. There is a fee for the course, contact us for detailed information about the actual rate for you. Together with the one-day introduction course, you are also obliged to participate in Wet-bench training and Risk Assessment training before you are actually allowed to work in the cleanroom on your own. Then you will also need a "Licence tool" to be able to use and book those particular tools you might need for your research. We will also offer you a discussion with our process specialists about your actual project in the lab at an individual start-up meeting. After the course, we will supply you with some necessary items such a lab shoes and tool box, contact Kaija Matikainen,

There should also be a funding project identified and registered from you that will pay the costs for your activities in the cleanroom.
