Welcome to Adelaide Microscopy, the Centre for Advanced Microscopy and Microanalysis.

Adelaide Microscopy offers access to a broad range of the most technologically advanced instrumentation for microscopy and microanalysis. Our scientific support services are available to universities, other institutions and the private sector.

Adelaide Microscopy Entrance Changes

As of 18/12/2017 staff and visitors can access Adelaide Microscopy through the main Helen Mayo Building North doors (off Frome Road). The electron microscope and laser ablation labs can also once again be accessed via the internal stairwell next to Reception on the ground floor.  We would like to thank you for your patience during the renovation process.
