Small Animal Tomographic Analysis Facility (SANTA)
Access and Reservations
Registered users can reserve time on the microCT and OPT scanners when it is most convenient for them. Bookings can be made in one-hour blocks, typically with a maximum of three hours per day per user, but longer times can be reserved through prior arrangement with SANTA staff.
Make reservations using our online booking system.
How to Register
If you want to access SANTA but aren't registered, follow these simple steps:
- Download and complete the registration form (PDF) and email it to us.
- Once you have received confirmation that your account is set up, access the online booking system to enter your password and complete the registration process.
- If you want to perform your own scans, please email us to arrange for basic training.
Note: Only people who have completed basic SANTA training will be permitted to book the scanners and do their own scans. Support staff will perform all scans for people who haven't completed the training. The fee schedule will be commensurate with the level of support staff involvement.
