RMIT Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility

The RMMF is one of the largest multi-disciplinary microscopy and microanalysis facilities in Australia. It houses ~15 major instruments including state-of-the-art electron microscopes, surface analysis and microanalysis instrumentation.

The RMIT Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility (RMMF) is a centralised facility within the STEM College at RMIT University. The RMMF mission is to “collaborate with researchers from RMIT, other universities, government agencies and industry to provide advanced instrumentation, expertise and training that enables researchers to solve key problems in science, engineering and health.” 

The RMMF is a linked lab of Microscopy Australia.
