Imaging facilities available across the Medical Sciences Division

multiplex imaging users group

This group aims to connect researchers working with the numerous multiplex imaging technologies across the University, including Zellscanner (Peter Medawar Building), CellDive (Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology), Vectra Polaris (Old Road Campus Research Building), Codex (WIMM), Hyperion (WIMM), Nanostring GeoMx (NDS, JR). For more information about the group please join the Multiplex Imaging Users Group Teams site.

Oxford Biomedical Imaging Network

In 2007 the University established a joint MSD/MPLS Biomedical Imaging Network. This network links together the various departmental-based imaging programmes and attempts to promote a coordinated biomedical imaging strategy and collaborative environment. This Network has links to most imaging facilities across the University.

Micron Oxford Advanced Bioimaging Unit

Micron Oxford aims to develop and apply new and emerging advanced microscopy technologies to facilitate important discoveries in basic biomedical research. To achieve this, we coordinate and manage the interdepartmental and interdisciplinary cooperation required to lower the activation energy for biologists to become early adopters of advanced imaging methods.

Our advanced microscopy facilities are located across Oxford primarily in Biochemistry, Dunn School, WIMM and WTCHG. However, we include scientists in many other departments, including, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, CNCB, DPAG, Kennedy and Diamond. Our facilities include all flavours of super resolution imaging modalities as well as single molecule methods and CLEM. We develop and adopt new technologies across all areas of Microscopy: Probe development, specimen preparation, instrument preparation and image analysis.

The Wolfson Imaging Centre

The Wolfson Imaging Centre at the WIMM contains a diverse range of wide-field and confocal microscopes suitable for imaging specimens ranging in complexity from single cells to small laboratory animals.
