Expertise & advice

Our service is underpinned by the expert knowledge and experience of our highly skilled staff. We can help identify the most appropriate methods to apply to a given biological question and will train users of any level how to operate imaging systems independently. Where resources and/or time are limited, or for highly technical methods such as FIB SEM, we can offer a full service imaging service. We can also offer help and advice with image processing and analysis and have a significant amount of experience developing tailored analysis pipelines for high content imaging assays.
