A team from the University of Sheffield has designed and built a single-molecule microscope for one-tenth the cost of commercially available models — and shared the build instructions to make the equipment more readily available. The microscope, called the smfBox, is able to image at single-molecule resolutions. Because the high cost of equipment and components restricts access to microscopes with such resolution, the smfBox project aims to increase access to single-molecule microscopy; the microscope can be built for £40,000, compared to the £400,000 price tag on many...Read full article
