Leica Microsystems GmbH has launched the TCS STED (stimulated
emission depletion) CW microscopy system. Available as an upgrade for systems that
are already installed, the device combines the company’s confocal TCS SP5
with patented superresolution technology. Capable of real-time, high-speed scanning
on the nanoscale, it can scale down the scanning spot to subdiffraction size by
switching off fluorescence in the periphery of the excited area. The instrument
can be used with numerous fluorescent dyes and proteins for a variety of applications.
