  1. Registration as Protein Analysis users

    New users should contact the staff and provide their user-ID, their supervisor’s user-ID and the budget number from which the service will be charged.
    New supervisors as well as new users should fill in the Protein Analysis safety form and give details about their project. The form may be accessed either after logging on to internal services or after entering the Protein Analysis reservation system. While filling in the Safety form, special care should be taken to describe the cell types to be used as well as the biological or chemical risks involved in the project.
    After filling in the Safety form new users should send an email to the staff with details of their full name and ID number so that their Weizmann ID card will enable them to enter the Protein Analysis lab after working hours.
    * The form should be resubmitted every year.
