Research facilities and Technical services

Bio-imaging and Flow Cytometry facility


The Faculty of Biological Sciences has a number of research facilities which are open to all researchers at the University of Leeds, other academic institutions, and industry. Their purpose is to support world-class research at the interface of chemistry, biology, physics, medicine and engineering. As well as state-of-the-art instrumentation, each facility is staffed by experts in their field who can advise on all aspects of application of the techniques to your research including experimental design, training, data analysis and experimental assistance.

Our ten facilities cover the broad research themes of biophysical characterisation, structural elucidation and cellular visualisation. Together they provide a full pipeline for preparation and complete characterisation of systems from single molecules, to macro-molecular complexes, to cells. For more information, use the links on this page to explore the research facilities within each theme. All University of Leeds users can find out more about accessing our Research Facilities via our SharePoint site at
