Dementia Research Institute
Our Dementia Research Institute houses state-of-the-art fluorescence microscopy systems.
Researchers can perform detailed studies of samples using spinning disc and laser-scanning confocals in addition to conducting large-scale screening approaches using a robot-assisted high-content screening platform.
Dedicated data-handling infrastructure and analysis software provides researchers with the tools to interrogate and analyse image data.

|High-content fluorescence imaging platform
||Perkin Elmer Opera Phenix
||Automated, high-content fluorescence imaging system with widefield and confocal capabilities. High-NA water immersion objectives give high resolution and maximise photon harvest. sCMOS cameras provide a large field of view and the system features environmental control for live cell imaging.
|Laser scanning confocal
||Laser scanning confocal microscope for high quality fluorescence imaging. Hybrid detectors and prism-based spectral optics enhance sensitivity.
|Spinning disc confocal
||Zeiss Cell Observer SD.
||A Yokagawa spinning disc head fitted to a Zeiss Examiner upright stand allows rapid and sensitive fluorescence imaging with optical sectioning and high image quality.
|Single cell analysis system
||TaKaRa ICELL8 cx Single-Cell System.
||Single cell system for the rapid isolation and analysis of large numbers of single cells.
