The facility caters for a wide variety of imaging requirements and can offer conventional brightfield, phase, DIC and widefield–fluorescence microscopy as well as confocal-microscopy including two-photon microscopy and ‘high-content’ confocal screening.

This allows us to cover a wide range of imaging techniques for example: Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleach (FRAP), Forster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET), time lapse (live-cell) and volume (z-stack) imaging.

Our equipment can accommodate fixed and live-cell requirements and is supported by several networked and dedicated workstations.

The Bio-Imaging Unit is one of a number of facilities available for commercial use at Newcastle University.
