Existing research facilities

Please find below a list of facilities currently available to researchers:

The LIMS Bioimaging facility offers researchers access to a complementary range of high performance confocal and conventional widefield microscopes for optical imaging of live cell dynamics and most fixed biological specimens.

Centre for Materials and Surface Science - Nanocharacterisation Capabilities

CMSS operates open access analytical facilities hosting world class surface analysis and X-ray tomography instrumentation. CMSS hosts the Nanocharacterisation Activity Hub of the ANFF-Victoria node.

Flow cytometry is a sensitive technology used for analysis or physical collection of fluorescently labelled cells.

Gait Lab

One of the key features of the laboratory is the Vicon motion analysis system for kinematic (motion) and kinetic (force) evaluation.

The LIMS Histology Facility offers a suite of precision instruments for high quality specimen preparation and sectioning.

La Trobe's Visualisation hubs are immersive spaces that allow researchers to display, analyse and interact with data, and to share their findings in real time with their colleagues in Australia or overseas.

The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre (MDFRC)

The services and facilities are open access to La Trobe staff and students with oversight from MDFRC staff. The Centre also has NATA accredited laboratories for the chemical analysis of waters, effluents and constituents of the environment and the identification of macroinvertebrates.
