Damages to instruments that are more severe than the daily wear have to be reported to the assistant. They do occur sometimes and are not neccessarily the fault of the user. In most cases, they can be fixed within a day or two by our workshop.
Consumables like acid, aceton, elvacite, pill containers, towels, pipettes etc., as well as glassware and ceramic crucibles can expend quickly, so please inform the assistant early when you see that supplies are running out. Delivery of supplies can take up to 3 weeks.
Once you have cleaned and removed your belongings from the lab (including samples!!), hand over the key and platinum materials to the lab assistant. DO NOT leave the Pt dishes & crucibles on the assistant's or your desk! Hand them over personally. If you can't do so, leave them in the tools drawer in the lab and lock the lab. Get an A4-sized transportation tray for pills from the lab assistant. This has to be given back after receipt of analyzed pills. When you fill the tray, label it with your name/phone/e-mail/date (printed, attached with tape) and close the tray securely with a strip of red insulation tape (tools drawer, lab).
Download and fill out the forms. The forms can be obtained from this site (see Forms). Hand over the LOI form to Prof. Dietrich or the assistant. Hand in the other two forms together with the pills. They will get taken out to EMPA for analysis for you, and you will receive them back approximately three weeks later.
