Assists scientists at all levels and from all disciplines to visualise and track the movement the cells.

The Burnet Live Cell Imaging facility provides three high-end microscopes located in physical containment level 2 (PC2) and level 3 (PC3) laboratories, which allow the imaging of live cells infected with pathogens such as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (PC3) , Hepatitis C Virus and malaria parasites (PC2). Our recently acquired Nikon N-SIM/N-STORM super-resolution microscope allows a two- to ten-fold improvement in image resolution.

Head of Burnet’s Cell Imaging Facility (CIF), Dr Candida da Fonseca Pereira, provides guidance on the use of the facility especially in the areas of project design, training and support in image acquisition and analysis.

As part of the Monash Micro Imaging (MMI) network, the CIF gains access to extensive expertise and imaging platforms located on Monash University Clayton campus and the Monash Health and Research Precinct.

CIF services are available to all researchers at the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP) as well as external users.

Scientific staff from Melbourne’s leading research centres use CIF services to acquire images on a diverse range of diseases including malaria, HIV and AIDS, influenza, hepatitis C, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
