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 & 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.

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.

Entrance Card System

To get access to BioVis premises you need to have a door-card. Our old Card system (Landstinget i Uppsala Län) is no longer valid. A new card system is established. The new card system does NOT apply for research groups based in Rudbeck Lab, as they have already access. Please contact for more details.

BioVis follows recommendations regarding Corona pandemic.

We are open. But LOW IN STAFF.

In case you are a new user to the instrument – have a colleague with you who can guide and help. Do not start/run projects were intensive help from BioVis staff is needed.
