Henry Wellcome Laboratory for Cell Imaging
The construction of the Henry Wellcome Laboratory for Cell Imaging was made possible by the award of £1.2 million from the Joint Infrastructure Fund administered by The Wellcome Trust as well as additional contributions from HEFCE.
Recently, the laboratory has been further enhanced by a £500k award from the Capital Infrastructure Fund which has funded the purchase of a multi-photon microscope and the upgrade of our image storage facilities. This state-of-the-art facility consists of two components: an Imaging suite and an Analysis suite.
The Imaging laboratory contains eight fluorescence microscopes (inc. a multi-photon microscope with lifetime-imaging capability and two laser-scanning confocals) that can produce very high quality images, both still and moving, for the study of cells and tissues at the molecular level.
The Analysis suite is a dedicated facility for multi-user image analysis, 3D-reconstruction, deconvolution and archiving that consists of five computer workstations and
