About us

The Centre for Advanced Microscopy (CAM) provides state-of-the art microscopy and microanalysis equipment to researchers, students and industry partners.

Our specialist staff will guide users towards appropriate sample preparation techniques and instrument allocation and support their research across all material and life science disciplines.




Together, CAM and the CTLab form the Advanced Imaging Precinct and the ANU node of the Microscopy Australia (formerly the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF)).
