Investigator-operated Cryostat

The Liver Center owns and manages two cryostats for use by Center members.  One instrument is located on Parnassus and the other is at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.  Training and certification is required before working independently. Access to the cryostats is by calendar reservation.  To undergo certification and reserve time for cryostat use, please contact the personnel at the desired location.
