Services

The Advanced BioImaging Facility offers a range of services. Below we have listed just a sample of the baseline services we have to offer. We also have a varied group of specific imaging techniques that will help you discover new possibilities within the inner workings of your sample on a microscopic level. The services listed here are only a fraction of what we have to offer. E-mail a member of the ABIF staff from the Contact Us page to find out what else we can do for you.
