Stats Central is a statistical consulting unit established at UNSW in 2016 to provide university-wide support for staff and students during study design and analysis. It is funded through the research division, with the support of the School of Mathematics and
This microscope has a unique design, allowing for a great deal of customization of the sample space and experimental design. The system is designed for up to four-color total internal fluorescence (TIRF), photoactivation (PA), fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), widefield correlation spectroscopy (WCS), spatio-temporal image correlation spectroscopy (STICS), and fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) experiments, all at high frame rates. Single-molecule measurements can be enhanced with a pair of single-photon avalanche photodiodes (APDs) and a pulse correlator for fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) and fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy (FCCS) experiments. An environmental chamber allows for these techniques to be extended to live cell samples.

The Nikon Eclipse Ti2-E is an inverted widefield system offering a large field of view, high-quality optics and an industry-leading focus stabilisation system (Nikon Perfect Focus System). With a stage insert providing temperature and CO2 control, this system is ideal for live-cell imaging. The system software includes Nikon JOBS, allowing automation of experimental protocols, including on the go analysis and cell identification. In addition to these features, this microscope is connected to a Cetoni liquid-handling unit, allowing for automated liquid exchange. Whether you are performing live-cell experiments, sample screening or automated experimental protocols, this system can perform the task with minimal researcher input.

Additionally, a CoolLED pE-340Fura light source enables rapid ratiometric imaging of rapid calcium dynamics.
Nikon Biostation is an inverted life cell imaging microscope enclosed in an incubator. The stage and objective are fully enclosed in temperature modulated box resulting in no focus drift during imaging. The cells are kept at 37C and supplemented with 5% CO2 throughout the entire experiment. The imaging chamber can hold 35mm glass or plastic bottom dishes of 0.17um thickness. The Biostation is an ideal microscope for imaging cell migrations, wound healing, cell division and cell growth and adherence.
The FV1200 is a filter based upright confocal system. A workhorse of our confocal systems it is well equipped for standard fixed samples where high resolution and sensitivity are required for localization based studies. Additionally as one of the few upright confocal systems within the BMIF it provides a means for visualizing water submerged opaque samples.
he IncuCyte S3 is a widefield inverted live cell system engineered with long term high throughput imaging in mind. Housed inside a tissue culture incubator, the imaging module maintains the most stable imaging conditions possible ( 37C temperature, humidity and 5% CO2). The system comes with a selection of versatile inserts allowing you to image your cells in a range of vessels.
