The fund encourages applications of the following nature:
One piece of capital quipment that is widely used and underpins capability across the research areas in the BBSRC remit. Applicant must be a researcher from an eligible UK research organisation. You can apply for:
1. Emerging and advanced research equipment/ capability
2. Equipment that promotes collaboration and increased access to users industry, public sector, and other institutes.
Initial installation and service maintenance contracts can be included if they are one-off costs and part of manufacturer's offer. Service maintenance contracts may extend a maximum of 24 months past the end of the award in but the contract cost must be paid within the lifetime of the grant (12 months).
Applicants may apply for advanced research equipment with a minimum value of £200,000 (inc. VAT) up to £1.5 M at 100% full economic costing.

ZEISS Solutions for BBSRC Alert Funding Call
Here are some recommended solutions that meet the application criteria, note that this is not an exhaustive list. Contact us for more information.
Image the ultrastructure of biological, resin-embedded samples in 3D over large areas. ZEISS Volutome is an end-to-end solution from hardware to software including image processing, segmentation, and visualization. The ultramicrotome can be easily replaced by a conventional SEM stage, converting your 3D FE-SEM into a standard, multipurpose FE-SEM, making your system adaptable to a multi-purpose environment.
ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7
ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet 7 makes light sheet fluorescence microscopy available for live cell imaging at subcellular resolution – while also allowing you to use your standard sample carriers. With this automated, easy-to-use system, volumetric imaging of subcellular structures and dynamics over hours and days with best protection from photo damage becomes available to everyone. Discover the dynamics of life in unprecedented depth of detail – with the ease you never imagined possible!
ZEISS Elyra 7 with Lattice SIM²
The super-resolution microscope Elyra 7 takes you far beyond the diffraction limit of conventional microscopy: With Lattice SIM² you can now double the conventional SIM resolution and discriminate the finest sub-organelle structures, even those no more than 60 nm apart. You don‘t need to sacrifice resolution when imaging at high speed using only the minimal exposure needed for life observation. Elyra 7 enables you to combine super-resolution and high-dynamic imaging – without the need for special sample preparation or expert knowledge of complex microscopy techniques.
