Henry Wellcome Imaging Centre - St Mary's Campus
The Henry Wellcome Imaging Centre offers a wide spectrum of microscopy capabilities, from widefield (inc. time-lapse) and confocal to correlative TEM. The centre includes a Category 2 lab, tissue culture hood, incubators, and EM preparation equipment (inc. Leica EM TRIM, Leica Ultracut UCT, Leica EMFCS, and Biacore). The centre is ideal for immunocytochemistry or tissue and cellular biology work.
Training and support are available from Mike Hollinshead
