Standard Microscopy

The brightfield microscopes can be configured in various ways.

Fluorescence Microscopy

The fluorescent microscopes are housed in purpose-designed individual darkened booths.

Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy

All confocal microscopes require training from designated individuals before use.

Multiphoton (2-photon) Microscopy

The Multiphoton Intravital Microscope is located within Lab G.069.

Live Cell Microscopy

There are 3 live cell imaging systems for housing and imaging cells for extended periods.

Imaging Software

Programmes for image analyses.

Optical Projection Tomography

There are 2 Optical Projection Tomography instruments.

Cell Sorting and Flow Cytometry

We make a distinction between Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) and Flow Cytometry.
