Super Resolution System
These are exciting times for light microscopists. A plethora of techniques have started to evolve that allow researchers to peek behind the once unsurmountable diffraction barrier. But to venture where no man has gone before, highest quality equipment is more important than ever.
Carl Zeiss is currently working together with inventors and early adopter laboratories all over the world to bring such equipment to market for the two most exciting superresolution light microscopy techniques: PAL-M
ELYRA product family combines PAL-M and SR-SIM technology
Photoactivated Localization Microscopy (PAL-M)
offers biomedical researchers outstanding effective lateral resolutions down to 20 nm for cells and tissues prepared with photoswitchable dyes. As a single molecule imaging method, it opens completely new dimensions of quantitative analysis of complex biological specimens.Structured Illumination Microscopy (SR-SIM)
can image any fluorophore with twice as much lateral and axial resolution as current light microscopes and will be an invaluable tool for superresolution live cell imaging.
