Core Facilities

Our core facilities are the pumping heart of the research effort at Westmead. We are particularly proud of how, as a partnership, we have continually developed our research capability allowing any groups who use our facilities to remain internationally competitive while also enabling unique oportunities for research collaboration

Bringing together the microscopes of The ACRF Telomere Analysis Centre (ATAC) and other microscope and image analysis technologies, AMC aims to enable world-leading research by providing comprehensive support for light microscopy techniques.

Microscopy is both a standard part of the biology toolkit and a highly specialised field, so we are here to help you get the best out of your samples with our advanced instruments.

Transmission electron microscopy provides a very significant increase in resolution over conventional light microscopy, but should be considered a complementary technique to other microscopies.

Cell Sorting is an advanced key technology in Flow Cytometry and a fundamental tool in medical research, which allows rapid analysis and accurate collection of specific cell populations at extremely high speed, high purity and high viability for further research or clinical purposes.

Genomics involves functional and structural characterization of genes (DNA) and their products (RNA) to determine genetic factors that play a role in disease.

Biomedical Proteomics at Children's Medical Research Institute (CMRI) is a collaborative research resource that combines applied proteomics with the development of Mass Spectrometry (MS)-based qualitative and quantitative methods for protein identification and characterisation.
