Since 2012, the Centre for Microscopy and Cellular Imaging has served the research community by providing equipment and support in microscopy applied to biology.
The Centre now houses four wide-field, a near-field (TIRF), three confocal (swept-field and laser-scanning) microscopes and a laser capture microdissection system; environmental control is available with each of these systems. Through consultation, our staff answer relevant methodological questions and provide expertise needed to successfully image at the cellular and sub-cellular level in both live and fixed organisms. We are open to new applications and research directions.
On-site specialists will help you select the most suitable microscope and imaging technique for your project and provide training to lab personnel. Contact us to find out what system you should be using to answer your research question!
