Facility Use Policies

As a multi-user facility, it is imperative that all users be trained by Center staff and work responsibly in the lab. Faculty are responsible for their staff, students and post-docs who use the facility and any costs incurred.


Instruments and staff are available during regular daytime hours. Instruments are available for use after hours by individuals that have been trained as independent users.


Instruments are reserved on a first come first serve basis. Users are encouraged to schedule instruments or staff time in advance. To schedule time, email your request to, call (4-0904) or come by the Center in the Science and Engineering Research Facility room 101. Please notify us as soon as possible if any instrument reservation needs to be rescheduled or canceled.


If you publish data generated in the Center please acknowledge the Center in your publication:

"The author(s) would like to acknowledge the University of Tennessee Advanced Microscopy and Imaging Center for instrument use, scientific and technical assistance."

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
