A Non-Toxic DNA Stain for Super Resolution Microscopy

Scientists from the Échole Polytechnique Fédérale de Laussane (EFPL) have created a new DNA stain that can be used in live cells. The far-red DNA stain, called SiR-Hoestch, is non-toxic, works for different cell types and can be used in super-resolution microscopy. These characteristics make it suitable for live-cell imaging. The work has been published in Nature Communications. […]

cellFRAP: High Speed Live-cell Imaging from Olympus

Olympus presents the cellFRAP, a live cell imaging platform for the in-vivo analysis of dynamic processes by accurate and flexible photomanipulation techniques. cellFRAP´s main feature is the diffraction-limited laser spot. The system allows to place the spot anywhere in the field of view with great accuracy and shape flexibility, enabling greater bleaching control than other systems. […]

Spinning Disk Statistical Imaging (SDSI) System: The Improved Super-Resolution Microscopy

A team of researchers (Dr. Neveen Hosny, a bioengineer from Prof. Martin Knight, School of Engineering and Materials Science; Dr. Ann Wheeler, Head of Imaging at Queen Mary’s Blizard Institute) from the Queen Mary University of London have developed a Spinning Disk Statistical Imaging (SDSI) system that offers super-resolution imaging of a range of cellular […]

New Method Allows Researchers to Observe Molecules Moving Inside Living Cells

Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have combined two different methods to develop a technique for visualizing and recording movement of molecules in live samples. The new technique is a combination of Stimulated Emission Depletion Microscopy (STED Microscopy) and Raster Image Correlation Spectroscopy (RICS). STED fluorescence microscopy is used to pursue the movement and interactions […]
