(webpage under development)


22 MAY 2017: The programme for the upcoming 2nd National High-Content Analysis and High-Throughput Microscopy Workshop, on 19-20 June 2017, Turku, Finland is now live at this link

Register for the workshop by 8 June 2017 here

23 MAR 2017: Our High-Throughput Facilities and Library Resources are under continuous development. If you do not see what you need here please contact us with our needs and we well let you know if we have a solution now or in the near future.

11 OCT 2016: The Turku Bioimaging Screening Unit (TBI-SU) has now been established, offering instrument access, expertise and services. These support medium to high-throughput imaging, high-content imaging, cell-based models, assay development, bespoke analysis algorithms, phenotypic screening and a range of additional high-throughput sample handling, preparation, perturbation and measurement options that facilitate modern biological research, drug discovery and target validation. The unit is hosted by both the Turku Centre for Biotechnology and the Institute of Biomedicine and is situated in the Pharmacity building. Our mission is to promote drug discovery and diagnostic opportunities provided by high-throughput and high-content imaging and related technologies.

Contact us for further information on and access to the range of services we provide and any other enquiries you may have (see “Contacts” below).


At TBI-SU we have a range of instruments and library resources suitable for different needs, suitable for small scale hit validation and characterisation to large-scale screens. Follow the links below
