Instrument Support

Support is available for all aspects of crystallography.

  • Individuals with CSB computer accounts may submit questions, problems or requests for assistance using the Request Tracking System. The request tracker allows for documentation, which can be of great value in understanding where problems exist. The RT system is also useful in that it keeps support requests active until resolved.
