Imagine:Imaging Life brings together three super-resolution imaging technologies – optical, electron and atomic force microscopies.
We are currently developing a £7 million facility, which will be unique in the world for its combination of microscopy capabilities. With significant investment from our partners, we’ve built a super-resolution light microscopy facility within the Wolfson Light Microscopy Facility (LMF). The suite includes two new super resolution microscopes, one based on structured illumination (OMX SIM, GE Healthcare), and another on localisation microscopy (N STORM, Nikon). We are also refurbishing our biophysical imaging centre, and our electron microscopy suite to house our new cryo-electron microscope.
Find out more about the our microscopy facilities in these videos below. Please also explore our gallery to see some of our equipment and techniques in action.
