Biological Visualization - Microscopy, Flow Cytometery, Electron Microscopy and Image Analysis


BioVis - Biological Visualisation

The BioVis platform of Uppsala University provides you with a unique combination of technology and know-how for visualization of biological samples at the tissue, cell and subcellular level. We specialize in microscopy, electron microscopy, flow cytometry and image analysis. We can offer state of the art electron- confocal and light microscopy, as well as analytical and imaging flow cytometry and cell sorting.

The Medical and Pharmaceutical faculty at Uppsala University supports BioVis financially, thus the user fees can be kept low. The platform is available for all universities, governmental agencies & private companies. Information about users fees can be found here.

With proper training, provided by us, you can get almost complete access to the equipment at BioVis.

Help us to spread the information that BioVis is available with its service for Uppsala University and beyond. You can download our Brochure here: BioVis Brochure.

Happy Autumn, Halloween and Research

Hereby we would like to inform you about the following.

Christmas/New Years Eve

Dates: We will close for the holidays December 24 to January 05.

Image Contest – BioVis Christmas card

We would like to invite you to an image contest: Since three years we are creating a Christmas card for our customers. The Christmas cards featured an image taken by our microscopes, usually an image which ´somehow´ evokes a Christmas feeling by color or composition. This year we would like to give YOU a chance to submit one image, taken on BioVis instruments for our 2018 card.The winner will get a free-12h on the instrument you normally use (This offer does not apply to full service or EM.)

Feel free to send in images coming from LSM700, 710NLO, LSM710SIM, AxioImager, Lightsheet, or even Flow Cytometry plots from LSR Fortessa, Flow Sight, Cytoflex, Cell Sorter AriaIII or Melody. Provide information about the instrument, tissue, marker and fluorophore(s). You can download here the application form. Send the application form with your picture to, deadline is November 23.

Flow Cytometry /Cell Sorting

Melody Cell Sorter Laser exchange: As a few groups explicitly requested to keep the 405 nm, the new set up will be 405/488/561. The 633nm Laser will be removed. The Melody sorter will be fit for sorting GFP/RFP combinations by November or December.

Entrance Card System

Our old Card system (Landstinget i Uppsala Län) will be terminated at the end of 2018. A new card system is established. The new card system does NOT apply for research groups based in Rudbeck Lab. Please contact for more details.
