Image analysis workstations
We provide a range of analysis workstations, accessible to all facility users. These are all based in the image analysis suite (room C27\U) except for Stelzer and Denk, which are in the Phase 2 lobby area. Many can also be used remotely using the University’s “remote gateway” service. A list of all workstations (with special software, location and remote access) is provided at the bottom of this page.
Most workstations are free to use for facility users; however, time on higher specification workstations (Axelrod, Huygens and Stelzer) is currently charged via PPMS at £2.10/hour.
Due to the limited number of available computers, please only book workstations if you are unable to process your images via other means. The vast majority of users should be able to use the remote gateway service to access either their own computer on campus, or a generic server-based desktop.
To use available workstations, you will first need to request remote gateway access via an IT Services ticket.
Since only one user can be logged on at any given time it is important that all use is booked in advance via PPMS. Similarly, please save data regularly in case you get disconnected. Ideally, no data would be stored locally on the computer (RDSF or OneDrive are much safer options).
To connect to these computers, please follow the instructions here and use the addresses listed in the workstation table below.
