Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science (IBBS)
University of Portsmouth Imaging Centre (UPIC)
UPIC was created in 2006 as a facility to bring together the wide variety of advanced microscopy techniques available in the Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science. The Centre has a purpose-built Microscopy Imaging Suite (St Michael's Building), which houses the atomic force microscope, live cell imaging microscope, total internal reflectance microscope and laser capture micro dissection apparatus. Various other microscopes, including three confocal instruments, are located close by in dedicated rooms.
