Super-resolution is Here!

Temporal resolution of 0.6 sec/frame enables super-resolution time-lapse imaging of dynamic live cell events - Now in Jackson Hall!

In structured illumination microscopy (SIM), the unknown cellular ultra-structure is elucidated by analyzing the moiré pattern produced when illuminating the specimen with a known high-frequency patterned illumination. Nikon’s Structured Illumination Microscope (N-SIM) realizes super resolution of ~100 nm in multiple colors. In addition, it can continuously capture super-resolution images at a temporal resolution of 0.6 sec/frame, enabling the study of dynamic interactions in living cells.
