University of Western Australia Node

UWA logo

The Centre of Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA) is the principal shared research infrastructure facility at UWA. CMCA supports a variety of small animal imaging capabilities within its Bioimaging Facility (BIF) located in the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research on the QEII Medical Centre campus. Platforms include a 9.4T pre-clinical MRI, Bioluminescence and Fluorescence spectral imaging, and Micro-CT. These facilities are accommodated in a PC2 certified environment.  

CMCA is also the Western Australian node of Microscopy Australia and in part accommodates and administers the Bioplatforms Australia nodes of Metabolomics Australia and Proteomics Australia.  

Power Capabilities

As well as preclinical small animal imaging, the WA NIF node has specialised expertise in materials science. Co-located with a range of complementary analysis platforms at CMCA, we have unique experience in imaging novel samples, including artefacts from the WA Museum and specimens from Western Australia’s biodiverse natural environment.
