Bioimaging at The Pirbright Institute brings together cutting edge instrumentation and a dynamic, experienced team to provide exciting collaboration opportunities. This combination of expertise, knowledge and state of the art equipment place Bioimaging at Pirbright at the forefront of global containment microscopy.
High resolution microscopes provide the opportunity for researchers to visualise viruses in situ and identify the location of molecules within cells. The bespoke Bioimaging Suite in the new Plowright building houses both confocal laser scanning microscopes and transmission electron microscopes within a high containment envelope enabling the study of live viruses and their interactions with host cells. The instruments located within the Bioimaging Suite provide a unique environment for the study of animal and zoonotic pathogens, and are available for use by both internal and external collaborators.
