Training and Service

Numbers 2023/2024


We provide a training session with new users.

  • For optical microscopy training, a one-on-one training session takes up to 2 hours for the Olympus BX53 microscope and a whole day for the Olympus FV1000 confocal microscope and PE spinning disk confocal microscope.
  • For SEM and TEM, new users will be asked to take the BIF Canvas online training course (self-paced course) prior to one-on-one hands-on training sessions (3 sessions of 3 hours each).
  • For the sample preparation and microtome training, it takes at least a half day for the sample preparation technique and a whole day for microtome training.


We accept projects/samples on a first-come, first-serve basis. Depending on the facility occupancy, some delays may be expected.

If you are an academic user, please fill in and submit the Service/Training Enquiry Form available at the bottom of this page. Miki Fujita, BIF Research Manager, will arrange a meeting with you and the BIF staff to learn more about your samples and timeline and to schedule the imaging sessions.
