With a long history of collaboration with Industry, Adelaide Microscopy has the staff expertise and extensive experience to apply a diverse range of samples to microscopy. The facility is conveniently located within the Adelaide central business district on Frome Rd.

Adelaide Microscopy is staffed with full-time microscopists and skilled technical officers. The staff have many years of accumulated knowledge in microscopy and experience in the biological and materials sciences.

The centre's microscopes provide high resolution imaging of biological (tissue, plant etc.), geological, physical and chemical materials down to nano-dimensions. They also provide analytical information through x-ray analysis. Increasingly these techniques are developing the capability of examining the structure of materials in 3-D. Many microscopes at the centre now provide these capabilities.
