Super-Resolution Microscopy

New optical microscopy methods, such as STED, SIM, (F)PALM and (d)STORM, bypass the diffraction barrier and enable super-resolution imaging or “Nanoscopy”, with substantially improved optical resolution. Nowadays, they can provide a spatial resolution in three dimensions that is well below the diffraction limit, and close to a near-molecular resolution. These methods can be applied to biological samples, and provide new views on the structural organization of cells and the dynamics of biomolecular assemblies on wide timescales.

Super-Resolution Microscopy using dSTORM is possible with the ibidi Polymer Coverslip. For other applications, we recommend using the ibidi Glass Bottom.
