Detmold Family Trust Cell Imaging Centre

The Detmold Family Trust Cell Imaging Centre provides staff and students of SA Pathology, and other research institutions, access to state-of-the-art cell sorters, flow cytometers and microscopes, with specialist staff on hand to assist investigators in achieving the best results from their studies.

The Detmold Family Trust Cell Imaging Centre was so named to acknowledge the Detmold family’s generous donation towards the purchase of the flow cytometer. The gift commemorates Mr Phillip Detmold, who died of leukaemia in 2001. These funds were met by an equal contribution from the Department of Human Services.

Funding for the original confocal microscope came predominantly from the Welcome Trust and was due to the tireless efforts of a small group of researchers at the Hanson Institute. The Facility provides specialist cell-imaging which enhances the research activities being undertaken across the campus.
