Biological and Soft Systems


Microscopy underpins a lot of the research carried out in BSS. We have access to three confocal microscopes in house, a handful of epifluorescence microscopes with state of the art cameras, Raman imaging, two AFM, various Cavendish Lab electron microscopes including Environmental-SEM. We also develop custom imaging setups including   spectral imaging and automated acquisition systems.
