Equipment & Resources

The Bioimaging Facility is facilitating the use and maintenance of an wide variety of advanced Microscopy, Imaging analysis and Cytometry devices, as well as software licenses and system accessories. Before anyone can make use of any system, users need to complete a training by the Bio-Imaging Facility team before bookings can be made.
