We are home to advanced microscopy, microanalysis, spectroscopy and imaging equipment. These instruments are funded by government grants, Microscopy Australia and the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF)—which means that they're available for use by scientists around Australia and the world. Our facility is led by a multi-disciplinary team of expert chemists, biologists, physicists and engineers undertaking novel research and providing service to industry.
Are you a researcher or scientist wanting to use our facility? Perhaps you have a business needing our people to improve your products or services? We believe in the power of working together to solve complex problems and find creative solutions, so get in touch.
Our equipment and facilities are cutting-edge and often custom built. Many are one-of-a-kind in Australia—or even the world. They are used by researchers working across materials science, nanotechnology and nuclear chemistry on exciting projects such as replacing toxic mining materials with rock-eating bacteria or creating solar cells that could one day power buildings.
We work with businesses—from start-ups to multinational companies. Our researchers have improved products and processes across many industries, including defence, food and agriculture, manufacturing, maritime, and technology. We use our advanced optical and biomedical imaging and materials characterisation equipment to bring creative solutions to industry. Our past projects cover everything from looking at the surface properties of materials to prevent corrosion, to correcting defects in 3D printing technology.
We believe in the power of collaboration. By working together, we can solve complex issues and find innovative solutions. Our researchers are part of nationwide networks, with access to the Australian Synchrotron, the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation and more. We are creative big picture thinkers and detail-orientated problem solvers. What we all share is a deep love of science. But we know that science needs to work hand-in-hand with the real-world of politics, economics and social factors.
We believe in the importance of sharing. We want to collaborate with researchers and scientists around the world by offering access to our innovative technologies. If you have a project that needs our equipment, we want to help. Our equipment falls into two categories: optical microscopy and materials characterisation.
Our light microscopy and sample preparation capabilities provide a range of imaging solutions, ideal for imaging cells and other biological samples. Access to equipment for sample preparation and labelling or staining is also available.
