New live super-resolution microscope available at Institut Curie

The Cell & Tissue Imaging facility offer the possibility to do super-resolution imaging on living cells, with the installation of a new module from Roper Scientific on the spinning-disk 3 microscope. This cutting edge technology is set up at Institut Curie Burg location.

The Live-SR is based on optically demodulated structured illumination technique with online processing. It uses the pinhole patterns of Nipkow disks to enhanced high spatial frequencies. This microscope bring the resolution down to 105 nm ! It allows fast imaging, up to 1000 frames per seconds, using an easy-to-use software interface.

This equipment, first of its kind in France, is also open to external users.
