To help the lab users to plan their work and to ensure that a lab equipment will be free to use, the Quarks software provides a booking tool. This booking tool is also used by the support team to indicate the maintenance periods, or if an equipment is not available due to a failure or a breakdown.

In your Quarks account, go on the _Equipment_ platform. In the _Equipment_ section, you have a search tool to help you find an equipment among all the LCSB equipment. You can search by internal reference number (e.g. LCSB01685), model, manufacturer or serial number in the “quick search” field.
If you want to add more search criteria, you can do so in the drop down list “Add a filter”.
