Micron Advanced Imaging Facility

We have a range of super-resolution, wide-field and confocal systems. If you are unsure which instrument suits your needs, we have produced an instrument summary table of the pros and cons of each.

All users of the Micron facility must be trained by a member of staff before they can start using any systems. Please contact Micron (micron@bioch.ox.ac.uk) if you wish to start using any of our instruments or have any other questions.
