The Atomic Force Microscopy Facility at the University of Edinburgh houses a Bruker JPK NanoWizard 4XP and JPK CellHesion 200 AFM for the structural, mechanical and surface characterisation of samples across a range of environmental conditions.
This facility is available to all researchers across the university as well as external users from other universities and industry.
The Bioimaging Facility at Edinburgh University offers both multiphoton imaging and spectral characterisation for a wide range of samples from both biological and material sciences. This service is available to staff, students and external users.
The University of Edinburgh Curved Wave Tank is a multidirectional wave facility, which is capable of producing digitally controlled pseudo random waves with definable spectral and directional statistics. It is equipped with force feedback absorbing wavemakers, which enhance the accuracy of marine environmental conditions through the minimisation of standing waves.
Microfluidic technology has gained significant popularity over the last decade due to its many advantages as an enabling technology. It is now widely used in various research areas including, among others: chemical synthesis (including DNA); studies of chemical reactions; cell culture and manipulation; fluid dynamics; and medical diagnostics.
