Light Microscopy

The University of Auckland has a number of microscopy facilities and equipment hot spots. These will be added once details are checked and updated. In the meantime, the Biomedical Imaging Research Unit is a very good starting point. It houses both light and electron microscopes, a team of highly trained staff with a breadth of knowledge across experimental design, image acquisition and image analysis. It also has a mass spectrometer, high content screening and whole section imaging resources.
