Overview

WEHI’s imaging facility offers researchers access to state-of-the-art equipment and gives guidance and training to researchers in advanced optical imaging techniques. A particular focus of the facility is to educate and train both students and researchers so they can independently design, apply and analyse their own imaging experiments. The Imaging Facility is highly specialised in multi-dimensional image acquisition, including 3-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of sub-cellular, cellular, tissue and organ structure, 4D experiments using line-scan confocal imaging and 3D in vivo imaging tomography.
