The Microbial Imaging Facility (MIF) at UTS has been established to provide:
High-resolution imaging of bacteria and parasites, and their interactions with host eukaryotic cells.
High-resolution imaging of biological processes within larger eukaryotic cells.
Equipment for flow cytometry and biological specimen preparation for optical and electron microscopy.
Training and on-going support on the use of both basic and advanced microscopes including transmitted light (TL), wide-field fluorescence (WF), confocal laser-scanning (CLSM) and super-resolution (SR) microscopes and a range of image analysis and 3D-image visualisation software (ImageJ, FIJI, Huygens and Bitplane™ Imaris).
