UniSA Instrument Services

What instruments are available at UniSA for my research?

Instrument Services online search tool

The Instrument Services online search tool allows authenticated UniSA staff and research degree students to search a database of University-owned research instruments, and facilitates a variety of searches including searches for a specific instrument (eg. confocal microscope); searches for a list of instruments within a specific category (eg. all instruments related to 'Chemical/Water Analysis'); and searches for a list of instruments within an Org code.

Search results can be filtered using variables such as campus, and selecting an instrument record 'drills down' to further information including the instrument's location (campus, building, level, room), how to book the instrument or enquire about its availability, whether there are restrictions on the instrument's use, and a description of what the instrument is used for and/or the instrument's specifications.

How can I book a UniSA research instrument or accessory?

The University offers an online Instrument and Equipment Booking System, utilising Artologik EZBooking, which allows authenticated UniSA staff and students to find research instruments by searching a database using the instrument name, instrument description or free text, in order to book instruments.

Currently this system only contains instruments and accessories owned by the Future Industries Institute, however more University instruments and accessories will be added to the system at a later date. This system is accessible to trained staff, students and corporate users, and details of how to arrange a training session can also be obtained from FII's Equipment Bookings page.
