Light microscopy

The light microscopy (LM) unit at the Wolfson Bioimaging Facility houses an extensive range of advanced microscope systems for imaging cells, tissues, organisms and materials.

Recent acquisitions to our excellent facilities include: Leica SP8 confocal laser scanning microscopes, Evident spinning disk (with super-resolution), Evident/Abbelight TIRF (with single molecule imaging) and three systems for automated widefield imaging of multi-well plates and slides.

We also provide additional fluorescence techniques including widefield,  lightsheet, multiphoton,  and fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM).

Most of our microscope systems are suitable for imaging fixed and live specimens, with temperature control, CO2 enrichment and multi-site imaging available.

Our support team can provide assistance and advice on sample preparation, image acquisition and analysis.
