Biomedical Imaging Facility (BMIF)

BMIF unites scientists dedicated to medical research, who address substantial scientific research questions of clinical relevance.

Falling within the UNSW Analytical Centre, the BMIF is a world-class imaging facility that enables innovative, cross-disciplinary research at the forefront of fundamental biomolecular sciences. The BMIF is particularly strong in cell and single molecule imaging.

The BMIF also leads Australia in the design, establishment and testing of new microscopes and imaging technologies. Our team work closely with international optic manufacturers to further advance technologies in bioengineering and bionanotechnology, which will aid our research towards finding answers to outstanding biomedical questions.

Currently the BMIF has twenty-one microscopes, available for research and analysis by students, academics and interested parties. The focus of the BMIF is fluorescence microscopy, examining samples illuminated by high energy light.

Our microscopes enable:

  • 2-photon and Intravital Microscopy
  • Biological / Soft Material Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)
  • Confocal Microscopy
  • Epifluorescence for live cell imaging
  • Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS)
  • Fluorometer and Lifetime Spectroscopy
  • Spinning Disc Microscopy
  • Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) Microscopy
  • Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM)
  • Superresolution Fluorescence Microscopy including photo-activation localisation microscopy (PALM)
  • Time-Resolved Single Molecule Imaging including Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM)
  • Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) Microscopy
