Multiphoton & Confocal


Please note that the CITER multiphoton and confocal are now up and running in the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences.

Nick White is the contact person. Once someone is cleared by Nick as adequately trained, then he/she can book their experimental sessions.   Nick White ( provides training 2-3 times per month so please contact him directly to book a place on his training session.

Due to the laser safety,  access to the lab with the multiphoton and confocal microscopes is restricted to persons aware of the risks (becoming aware is a part of the training) and registered as Laser Workers in the School. In the lab there are several copies of Guidance on the Safe Use of Lasers in Education and Research (obligatory reading material) and a short Registration of Laser Worker Form to fill in once the reading and training is completed.


The microscopes are located on the 2nd floor, room 2.57.


Gill Smith ( will be the contact person responsible for booking etc.
