Microscopy is a fundamental technique for cell-based investigations as it allows detailed sample visualization. The ARCHA imaging facility currently provides a large number of research groups with access to state-of-the-art microscopy equipment. Thanks to the interdiserplinary nature of ARCHA itself and the wide range of capabilities of the Facility we cater for groups from Pharmacy, Alternative methods of Drug delivery, Biology, Pharmocology, Medical Chemistry, Chemistry, Engineering, Optometry

The facility contains both a widefield fluorescence microscope and a laser scanning confocal instrument with a resonant scanner and multiphoton laser, enabling users to carry out a range of experiments from sample screening to deep tissue imaging. More detailed descriptions of these can be found within these pages.
