Bioimaging Facility

The Bioimaging Facility offers state-of-the-art imaging equipment to all members of the Faculty, the University and beyond.

There are more than 16 different microscope systems available, so if you have a project that requires imaging we should have a system to meet your specifications.

The facility has contributed to a number of high impact publications including Genes and Development and Nature. We have also a number of collaborations with other imaging facilities around the country and have close working relationships with many of the microscope and imaging companies.

We run regular imaging workshops and also host workshops in collaboration with the microscope companies for external users.

Before you begin your project we encourage you to discuss your requirements with us and we can advise you on your protocols and which system to use. We then provide full training on all of the systems and offer continued support right through the project.
