About Us

The Bio-Imaging Unit provides an invaluable microscopy resource not just for Newcastle University, but for other academic institutions and industry.

We can deliver 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:

  • Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleach (FRAP)
  • Forster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
  • time lapse (live-cell)
  • volume (z-stack) imaging

Our equipment can accommodate fixed and live-cell requirements and is supported by several networked and dedicated workstations. Contact us to find out more.

The Bio-Imaging Unit is one of a number of facilities available for commercial use at Newcastle University. A full list of Research Facilities can be found on the University's Working with Business web pages.
