Superresolution Microscopy Introduction

New and exciting techniques have been introduced that are now collectively termed superresolution microscopy and feature both lateral and axial resolution measured in the tens of nanometers and even less.

Introduction to Aperture Correlation Microscopy

Aperture correlation combines the light efficiency of structured illumination (SIM) with the acquisition speed of a spinning disk confocal instrument for new applications where high temporal resolution is mission-critical.

Introduction to Spectral Imaging and Linear Unmixing

Spectral imaging coupled to linear unmixing is becoming an important staple in the microscopist's toolbox, particularly when applied to the elimination of autofluorescence and for FRET investigations.

Introduction to Spinning Disk Microscopy

Review spinning disk microscopy from a historical perspective, as well as current instrumentation that is being used today. Also included is information on resolution and digital camera systems.

Introduction to Fluorescent Proteins

Fluorescent protein development strategies are centered on fine-tuning existing variants and developing new proteins emitting in the red wavelengths.
