The Latest Innovations in Real-Time Imaging of Cells with Super Resolution Microscopy
The current focus of the Super Resolution Microscopy community is to increase the utility of existing localisation microscopy techniques such as photo-activated localization microscopy (PALM) and stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM) – in these methods, fluorophores within a sample emit low levels of light, which is imaged many thousands of times. This creates a single composite image with resolution at the true molecular length scale. However, this process is slow, meaning that these techniques are not best suited to real-time imaging of cells and tissues.
In this webinar, Dr Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Dr. Orla Hanrahan and Dr. Susan Cox will discuss super resolution microscopy, a rapidly developing field that is breaking the diffraction limit to enable the close examination of finely detailed biological samples
