Welcome to the Advanced BioImaging Facility (ABIF) - Our in-depth, hands-on training in conjunction with expert advice will accelerate any light microscopy research project. Join us for a consultation about your specific needs and become part of the microscopy community of students, scientists, and staff. To learn about the facility, explore the links on this page or visit our About Us or Contact Us page for more information.

 


Every training request begins with a one-on-one consultation with one of our microscopy experts. All you have to do is bring your information and an ABIF consultant will advise you on sample preparation, imaging protocols, and analysis.
 


The ABIF plays host to over a dozen microscopy and analysis platforms. The facility prides itself on keeping up with the latest technology available on the market to maintain pace with scientific breakthroughs. 
 


Every microscopy platform in the facility runs on economically and environmentally friendly LED illumination sources. The ABIF is completely free of hazardous mercury in an effort to make the facility a sustainable branch of scientific application.
