Methodologies the facility can support:

The facility can support a wide variety of techniques, this is not an exhaustive list. We can image structures between 2 cm and 50nm.

  • Fixed imaging of fluorescent or colour labelled cells, tissues, organoids.
  • Deconvolution
  • Confocal imaging including 3D volume imaging and spectral imaging
  • Live cell techniques - Fast transient imaging and long term live imaging
  • F-Techniques: FRET, FRAP, RICS
  • Imaging of multiwell plates & miniscreens - see Drug discovery for screening.
  • Slide scanning (with Pathology facility)
  • Super-resolution, Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM) Single Molecule Localisation Microscopy including PALM + STORM.
  • Total Internal Reflection Fluorescent imaging.
