About us

The Cell Imaging Centre is the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry's core microscopy facility.
The Cell Imaging Centre provides services and training for imaging and analysis of live or fixed cells and tissues.

We offer a wide range of cutting-edge image acquisition equipment and expert consultation for experimental design related to light and electron microscopy. Full technical assistance – from sample processing through image analysis – is available on a wide range of equipment.

Conventional TEM/SEM service includes consultation, specimen fixation, processing, sectioning and imaging plus about 5 high resolution images. The Cell Imaging Centre will provide fixative for specimens. Options include cryo processing, immuno-labelling, negative staining and correlative imaging with light microscopy.
