Super high resolution correlative microscopy facility up and running

The ARC funded super high resolution correlative microscopy facility is now up and running. This unique facility combines the Zeiss CrossBeam SEM with a super high resolution confocal ELYRA and will support a broad range of research in biotechnology, nanomedicine, environmental sciences and mineral research. The structured illumination Elyra microscope is the first super high resolution confocal instrument in South Australia.

The two Zeiss microscopes are located in the MM building adjacent to our lab and will provide the BioNanoEngineering group with a world class technology to unravel the behavior of nanomedicine in biological systems.
