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 Light- and, Electron-Microscopy, Flow Cytometry and Data analysis. We can offer state of the art Electron-Microscopy and sample preparation, Confocal- and Superresolution-Microscopy, 2Photon- and Slide Scanning Microscopy, as well as analytical Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting. See more information here. BioVis is hosted by the IGP department and situated in the Rudbeck Laboratory, Science Park, Uppsala.The Medical & 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 our equipment.

BioVis Newsletter Summer 2023
Below are the headlines and information concering BioVis and summer/autumn 2023.
Summer 2023: We closing in towards summer but will keep open most of our instruments for usage. July and August we will be understaffed and you will see that some instruments are not mad available. Instruments available will be handled by either a “stand-in” or customers themselves. The EM node will close for vacation 29,30,31.
Instruments: BioVis has installed the Flow Cytometer Cytoflex LX with its capacity of 21 fluorescent channels, including High-Through-put using 96 well plates (deep well included). Another new instrument is the Cytoflex SRT – our new Cell sorter, which we will teach to customers. More information on our dedicated Flow Cytometry page. We are also currently in the tender process to purchase a new Laser Scanning Confocal – installation during Autumn – stay tuned. In case your research calls for 3D Electron Microscopy(FIB_SEM) – contact BioVis EM staff.
Cell Sorting: Please note down that no cell sorting by BioVis staff is available during July and September week 36, 37.
BioVis Courses: BioVis´ upcoming PhD courses “Introduction to Image Analysis” (1.5hp) and “Methods for Cell Analysis” (3.5hp) are open for application. Another great PhD course is giving by the LCI facility in Stockholm 15 October to 15 November: registration to the LCI facility yearly doctoral course held 29 January - 16 February. The registration link will be published shortly before the registration date in this page.
NEW 2023 Instrument usage fee: We updated our prices, more details are found under the Info about BioVis.
- International Meeting on Optical BioSensors, August 23-25, Uppsala, More Info here.
- EMBO practical Course on Advanced Bioimage Analysis. More Info here.
- BNMI2023 conference is held in Odense, Denmark Aug 22-25 which bring together Nordic imaging facilities, scientists and industry to present/discuss the latest imaging technologies and processing methods. Topics include SuperResolution, Spatial Transcriptomics, EM and Correclative Imaging, and SRS & Raman Imaging, and Light Sheet Microscopy, as well as Image Analysis. More Info here.
The ALM Facility (Advanced Light Microscopy) in Stockholm welcomes you to two symposiums in Stockholm on Optical Clearing and Expansion Microscopy. The first symposium takes place at the Wenner-Gren Center on Sep 12th, and the second symposium at SciLifeLab on Sep 13th-14th, which is the experimental symposium aimed at educating researchers on clearing/expansion microscopy. Please see the flyers downlink for more info. Flyer Sept12 / Flyer Sept 13-14
DEMO instruments: Not at BioVis but at Stockholms LCI facility (Live Cell Imaging) - Nordic launch of the Nikon super resolution detector N-SPARC October 03-05: Main features are a very large field of view of 25mm, 2x the normal resolution of a point confocal (more if one deconvolves), compatibility with all objectives, compatibility with the very fast and low noise resonance scanner. At the same time, the great CrestV3 spinning disk + Deep SIM system will be demoed and we will have an open house with lunch and mingle. :) People are very welcome to book a private demo where we will image their own sample or watch the public demo. Please register at LiveCellImaging@ki.se. For more details on this event and its program check their homepage.
BioVis staff wishes you all a great, fantastic and successful summer.
