University of Edinburgh BioImaging small research facility

The aim of the BioImaging Facility is to investigate new imaging technologies and to provide access to state-of-the-art imaging instrumentation to users from biology and material sciences. The facility specialises in label free microscopy comprising of three core techniques Bio-Atomic force microscopy, Raman spectroscopy and multi-photon label free imaging (CARS/SRS/ SHG). Label free microscopy techniques are less invasive than fluorescence techniques, as the chemical composition and structure of the sample can be directly investigated without changing the sample by adding a stain or other invasive processing methods. Despite the advantages of these methods, they have so far been limited to use by specialised research labs, this facility provides access to these techniques to a wider user base across the UK.
