About the Super-resolution microscope
We have a super-resolution microscope which provides a range of advanced imaging techniques.
Super-resolution microscopy allows us to break the "Diffraction limit", which limits most fluorescence microscopes to around 200 nm resolution. This allows us to visualise molecule localisations and structions that were previously unresolvable.
Super-resolution microscopy can offer up to 10 times the conventional resolution than a standard microscope.
We offer both:
- structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM)
- stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM)
