The imaging facility at CRM provides support for microscopy imaging and analysis to our staff but is also available for external users.


The facility is equipped with microscopes ranging from basic stereo and widefield fluorescence through to high end confocal systems fluorescence and lifetime imaging. Additionally several image analysis and visualisation software packages are available for users to analyze their images.  Our facility manager, Bertrand Vernay, can assist CRM staff and visitors with various aspects of microscopic imaging ranging from planning a project, sample preparation, staining, selection and use of microscopes to image processing, presentation and data transfer. The imaging facility is developing dynamically to meet ever-increasing scientific requirements.

Access is on a fee for use basis and we train users to drive instrumentation independently or we offer a service.
