Microscopy measures 40-nm-diameter fluorescent objects

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Using spatially modulated illumination microscopy, scientists at the University of Heidelberg in Germany have measured nanoscale fluorescent objects beyond the limits of conventional high-resolution fluorescence microscopy. Accuracy was 90 to 95 percent for 90-nm red beads and 100-nm green beads and 80 to 90 percent for 40-nm red beads. They believe the technique, which relies on a virtual-microscopy data-analysis calibration algorithm, could serve as an alternative to or complement for electron- or x-ray-microscopy-based measurements of individual biological nanostructures within the interiors of thicker specimens such as cells. The research was detailed in the Dec. 1 issue of Applied Optics.
