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 and SPE confocal laser scanning microscopes, widefield microscope systems, an IncuCyte live cell imaging system,  Perkin Elmer Opera LX high content screening system and a Zeiss Z.1 lightsheet microscope.

We also provide additional advanced fluorescence techniques including multiphotonsuper-resolution (STED and HyVolution), fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS).

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.
