Equipment Reservations 

Internal LSU Users

Internal users may schedule and manage instrument reservations on FBS. Our goal is to make the facility as easy to use as possible and make your research workflow efficient. Therefore, FBS will be the online tool for requesting instrument training and reserving instrument time. There are kiosk stations available in each of the major instrument rooms at the SIF for logging into FBS.

The FBS system integrates with your PAWS ID login information. You will need to enter your worktag in order to request training or reserve instrument time.

If you do not know your worktag, please contact your advisor. If you have any issues with logging into FBS to request training or making an instrument reservation, please contact the Facility Manager or one of the Instrument Specialists for assistance.
