How to get access to the service of PCC.

Soon after the submission of your registration you will receive your CORE user account via email, enabling you:

  • To access the Rockmaker application through the Citrix Workspace.
  • To schedule your crystallization experiments by accessing the crystallization calendar and reserve date, time and the number of plates, including the pipetting and incubation temperature. This will make sure PCC is ready for your sample and the protein will be processed without any delay.
  • Deliver your sample the time you indicated in the calendar to building 44, room J-34 (Office: Y44 J 30/34) at the UZH-Irchel campus. PCC will expect your sample and will set up the crystallization experiment according to your specification.
  • At your first visit at PCC you will be given access to the two RockImagers and you will be instructed how to get the most use out of it.
