Molecular and cellular imaging
UCL excels in
all aspects of imaging of molecules, cells and tissues. Substantial investment from the JIF/Wellcome Trust programme, Platform Technologies CIF awards, and
other sources have provided state-of-the-art facilities, where researchers are interested in events that change in time at the
organ, tissue, cell and molecular level using advanced imaging methodologies.

The Eastman Dental Institute has a number of specialist facilities for imaging in addition to confocal microscopy, transmission EM and scanning EM
Atomic Force Microscopy
Attenuated Total Reflectance - Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
Raman and Fourier Mapping
The London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) has a number of specialist facilities in addition to Confocal/Fluorescent Microscopy. These include Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM), and an Ion Beam Facility (FIB).
All facilities offer one-to-one training for users.
Short courses in confocal imaging (Biosciences) are listed here.
There is a LEICA SCN400 with 384 slide autoloader at IoN Neuropathology, in Sebastian Brandner's group, which can be used by UCL staff for a fee. Slides can be stored for a fee or can be exported and made directly available to the user. In April 2012 a new Histology Facility will open at IoN, for academic research, clinical diagnostics and industry. The main expertise is mouse and human histology of the central nervous system, but facility staff will be able to cut up, embed, section and stain any other tissue.
UCL Advanced Diagnostics has one of the largest collections of antibodies and in situ
probes in the country for use on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded
tissue sections, and is a major centre for HER2 testing using both
immunocytochemistry and fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH). UCLAD provides a service to UCL Departments and UCL Hospitals.
The Flow Cytometry Core Facility at the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH) and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) provides state of the art instrumentation for cell analysis and sorting. Guidelines for the use of the facility and a description of the techniques are provided on these web pages.
The WIBR/Cancer Inst Scientific Support Service has two systems for Flow Cytometry. Both allow the user to measure simultaneously multiple physical characteristics of a single particle (cell) in a moving fluid stream.
The Eastman Dental Institute has a flow cytometry facility.
