Welcome to the Advanced Microscopy web site for the Biological & Biomaterials Preparation, Imaging, and Characterization facility at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

Information on our microscopes and services may be found here. We do service work and training in microscopy and preparation methods for members of the UW campus, and for off-campus and industry clients.

Note: It is generally a good idea to make an appointment with either Joe Heintz or Ralph Albrecht to discuss any microscopy projects before starting. There are many different methods of preparing samples for microscopical studies and many different microscopy methods, and the choice of which to use is highly dependent on both the samples and the questions to be answered.

Information about our course Practical Microscopy, Anatomy/AHABS/Animal Sciences 660, including a calender of scheduled speakers and topics, may be found using the link on the left.

Links to microscopy resources available on the UW-Madison campus and at other institutions are also on these pages.

Click on the items In the menu bar on the left for more information.
