Our Facilities

Not know which microscopy technique is right for your scientific question? Dr Ali Dun presents a webinar, in collaboration with Bitesize Bio, which can help you make the right choice.

 

Here at ESRIC we have arrange of microscopic techniques and software packages that when combined allow for high quality dynamic imaging to be achieved. These techniques include: Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy (TIRFM) and Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy (CLSM).

 

For investigating fluorescent lifetimes and interactions between molecules and single photons, it is appropriate to use Time Domain Microscopy. ESRIC houses several different microscopic technologies to allow for this objective to be achieved, these are:FCS, FRAP and spt-PALM.

 

We often need to visualise the biological constituents within cells below the limit of resolution to better decipher the true organisation of the cellular structures. The technologies offered by ESRIC to enable this are Gated-STED and SIM.

 

Here at ESRIC we have a number of super-resolution microscope systems capable of a range of highly advanced techniques, allowing for imaging of molecules down to several nanometres. For single molecule imaging we off a variety of technologies including: PALM, 3D-STORM and Atomic Force Microscopy.

 

Measuring molecular interactions and the properties of fluorescent proteins is a desirable capability to answer many scientific questions. ESRIC is offers several techniques that allow you to do exactly this using single photon counting methods; Fluorescence LIfetime Imaging Microscopy and Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy. 

 

Projects requiring cells for microscopic imaging can be provided by ESRIC and our tissue culture facilities. Here you can find out about the facilities and what we can offer to help you achieve your project goals.

 

ESRIC offers a variety of software packages to aid you with your data analysis of experimental results. These powerful packages help in obtaining the best quality outcomes from your experimental results, allowing you to be confident in presenting them to whatever wider audience they are aimed for.
