Scheduling MSU Equipment

In order to be in compliance with the University’s Operating procedures for Service Centers, we have adjusted our rates for instrumentation usage and services. These rates are based on utilization and actual cost of operation of the instruments or services rendered. We are working hard to track and control cost of operations and increase our utilization of equipment in support of research activities. Both of these factors will help to lower the fees that we have to charge.

I2AT uses the FOM (Facility Online Manager) platform for user registration, instrument reservation and usage tracking. This provides accurate accounting information for the determination of instrument rates and fees. Use the Book Now button to access FOM.

  • Once on the FOM homepage, for those new to FOM, there is a link to a User Manual PDF.
  • If you are a new user please select “I am a new user” and start the registration process in FOM.
  • The system will ask you to review the SOP for the center. Once you have reviewed the policy, close that tab, if you are in agreement select the “I have read the policy…” button and continue.
  • It should not take more than 5 minutes to fill-in the information.
  • When you click on submit, an email will be sent to the email address you entered to verify your registration.
  • Click on the link in the email and your account will be established.
  • You will be asked to enter a valid account for services to be charged to in order to continue.
  • Your account will not be confirmed until:
    • Internal users provide a valid account number and it is verified.
    • External Users provide a PO# or other purchase agreement reference to establish an account to charge against.

To schedule the use of the X-Ray, CT Scanner, 4D Ultrasound, Linear Accelerator, or Fluoroscopy equipment, please call our main number: (662) 325-3019.

Cancellation Policy

ALL cancellation requests must be made 24 hours in advance. We understand that particular experimental circumstances may not allow for a 24 hr advance notice. If this is the case, you must notify us at least 2 hr in advance. Not doing so will result in you being charged for the time you have reserved the instrumentation. You must cancel through the online scheduling system. Verbal cancellations may be made, but you must submit your cancellation online as well to avoid being charged for the time.
