Training for independent access to all CEITEC Nano cleanrooms

To gain access, each user must carefully read the CEITEC Nano user manual* and answer all questions related to this document in the examination form. Reserve at least 3 hours for careful reading of the manual and filling in the examination form. All users are obliged to know all information contained in the document, even if it is not directly related to their planned work. The answers will be evaluated within 3–5 working days by CEITEC Nano staff. If the score is above 90 %, you will be eligible for a safety excursion. If your score is below 90 %, you must fill out the examination form again.

Upon successful completion of the exam, you can register online via the booking system for a safety excursion. You can also make an appointment at the User Office in Room 1.04, email, or by phone at +420 54114 9207 to discuss your individual needs.

Depending on your needs, you may select the following safety excursions:

  • Nanofabrication laboratory – 45 min.
  • Nanocharacterization laboratory – 30 min.
  • Structural analysis laboratory – 30 min.
  • Chemical laboratory - 20 min.

In addition:  “Handling of toxic and dangerous chemical substances” training – is mandatory for all users who will be in contact with dangerous chemical compounds/solutions (for example, HF) – for 1 hr. This training is not included in the safety excursion for any laboratory, and you sign up for it separately via the Booking System.

If your needs change in the future, you may want to schedule an extra safety excursion. Note, that without completing the safety excursion for a given laboratory, you will not be able to book the equipment.
