New Micro/Nano Particle Characterisation Facility at CMM

The Micro/Nano Particle Characterisation Facility (MNPCF), opened in May 2022, is housed on Level 1 of the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), within CMM’s Life Science and Soft Matter Facility. The MNPCF is home to state-of-the-art instruments for particle characterisation providing capabilities for size and shape analysis of both wet and dry particulate samples, and powder sample preparation for optical and electron microscopy.

In addition to the equipment housed in the MNPCF we are pleased to partner with a number of research groups across UQ to offer access to a range of additional equipment to meet your particle characterisation needs.

Our vision is for users to be able to fully characterise all physicochemical properties of their samples through our network of accessible instruments. By using a combination of the complementary particle characterisation techniques on offer, users can generate a representative, and reliable overview of their samples.

If you have any questions regarding the Micro/Nano Particle Characterisation Facility, or if you have an instrument you would to like to provide access to through the MNPCF, please contact Dr Alison White.
