Bioimaging facilities at Forest & Landscape
The laboratory facilities at Forest & Landscape include dedicated start of the art Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and soon also Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). Both offers opportunity for 3D visualisation of complex biological systems and structures at nano-scale resolution. The AFM facility allows for imaging at the molecular level of biological reactions in situ. Specially designed building facilities have been constructed for the bioimaging equipment.
A Nicolet Continuum FT-IR microscope is also available with an optional ATR "slide-on" probe aligned with the optical microscope part. This provides around 10 micron spatially resolved chemical images of the subject of interest. The microscope is interfaced with a Nicolet 6700 research grade FT-IR spectrometer for which conventional transmission as well as a Smart Golden Gate thermostatted ATR accessory is available.
