Biological Optical Microscopy Platform

BOMP is here to support your research in as many ways as we can. Below are a few suggested ways that we can assist you. Contact us for more information.

Workshops & Seminars

Did you know that in 2015 almost 800 researchers attended BOMP training workshops & seminars?

BOMP holds a number of these throughout the year, including our annual Basics in Fluorescence Microscopy seminars in April each year. Be sure to check the news section to find out whats on.


We are available to assist you in experimental design, implementation & analysis. This service is provided free of charge.

Assisted use

We can provide assisted use sessions, where BOMP staff run the microscope for you. This is mostly used by researchers that need data quickly and don't need to be trained on the instruments.

All assisted use sessions are charged at a higher rate and are performed on a collaborative basis.

Image analysis

We can assist you in designing your image analysis workflow, provide you with training on the relevant software and can also perform analysis on a collaborative basis.

Grant applications

We are able to assist with applications for both research and equipment grants.

Manuscript preparation

We can assist in manuscript preparation by suggesting the best way to present your data in publications.
