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 of and 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
- wide-field fluorescence
- confocal laser-scanning
and a range of image analysis and 3D-image visualisation software (ImageJ, FIJI, Huygens and Bitplane™ Imaris).
