The Latest Innovations in Real-Time Imaging of Cells with Super Resolution Microscopy

 

Abstract

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
