This application deals with the implementation of the Multiuser Unit of Digital Microscopy (UMMD), in the Development Plan for Research Institutes for the Biological Institute (IB), FAPESP Process 2017/50334-3. It is intended for obtaining high resolution images, with increases of 12 up to about 2000 times. In order to do so, it is requested the acquisition of a Digital Microscope by the IB. The UMMD will be installed at the Advanced Center of Research on Plant Protection and Animal Health, in Campinas, SP state, Brazil. It is composed by a motorized digital microscope and its associated software for image automontage. Interested parties in using the digital microscope or requesting images must submit their proposals or requests to the internal member of the Management Committee (CG), via e-mail. The proposals should detail the scope of research, the analyzes that will be carried out and the estimated time of use of the equipment. The proposals will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis and analyzed for feasibility of execution and equipment availability. Once the proposal is approved, the user will have access to the equipment under the supervision of a technician designated by the CG. The costs of access to the UMMD and the services provided will be studied in each case, considering the time and intensity of use of the equipment and hours dedicated by the responsible technician. In return, the user must express thanks to FAPESP / UMMD / IB in any scientific communication (scientific article, presentations in congresses, etc.) originated from the results obtained by using the UMMD; also, the references of the scientific communication shall be provided to the CG. The results of UMMD use will be reported annually to the User Committee. (AU)
