Current Activities

  • Our expert staff have been heavily involved in supporting local Covid-19 testing. In collaboration with the great Biomedical Science unit at York Hospital, our teams have worked in shifts to help increase the capacity, and continue to support local testing at York District Hospital through these challenging times. Others in the team have turned their hands to producing and supplying face shields for front line workers.

  • We have been leading a series of open forums on how to establish safe working practices in the Covid-19 era in collaboration with BioimagingUK, Bioimaging North America and the Royal Microscopical Society. The next meetings will start on the 10th June
