About Us

The Bioimaging Unit provides an invaluable microscopy resource


We can deliver a wide variety of imaging requirements:

  • Conventional brightfield microscopy
  • Phase Contrast / DIC microscopy
  • Widefield Fluorescence microscopy
  • Confocal-microscopy including two-photon microscopy 
  • High-content widefiled screening and Slidescanning

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 Work with Us web pages.
