Microscopy

It lets us eye otherwise inaccessible tiny structures, and has done so for centuries now. But in recent times microscopy has also made headway into analytics. FTIR and RAMAN microscopes, for example, can obtain spectroscopic data for chemical imaging. Their chemical composition is ascertained by comparison with database entries or reference substance results. The obtained data can be related to surface structures with the help of 3D computer illustrations based on data from microscopic sensors.

  • Chip-based nanoscopy: Microscopy in HD quality

    This information can be used to produce images with a resolution of about 20 to 30 nanometres, and thereby ten times that of conventional light microscopy. Until now, this method has required the use of expensive special instruments. Bielefeld University and the University of Tromsø have filed a pat more

  • Pharmacoscpy: Next-Generation Microscopy

    A novel microscopy method allows unprecedented insights into the spatial organization and direct interactions of immune cells within blood and other liquid multi-lineage tissues. The assay, called “Pharmacoscopy”, developed and patented by scientists from CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine more

  • It is easier for a DNA knot...

    Anyone who has been on a sailing boat knows that tying a knot is the best way to secure a rope to a hook and prevent its slippage. The same applies to sewing threads where knots are introduced to prevent them slipping through two pieces of fabric. How, then, can long DNA filaments, which have convol more

Fluorescence Microscopy Directly in Your Cell Culture Incubator

The Lumascope™ miniature microscopes enable you to examine cells in their "familiar environment". Due to the compact design, long-term multi-channel recordings of cells (phase contrast, blue-, green- and red-fluorescent) can be performed directly in an incubator, in hypoxia cabinets or even in cold more

IR Microscopy That Overcomes Your Biggest Challenges and Your Smallest

Spotlight 200i FTIR Microscope System is a high-performance microscopy platform, designed to generate high-quality, reproducible data from a variety of sample types. The combination of the highly-automated, very easy-to-use system and exceptional sensitivity ensures that quality spectra can be obtai more

Nuclear Pores Captured on Film

Zooming into a nuclear pore complex using a high-speed atomic force microscope reveals the selectivity barrier that filters the traffic of molecules passing between the cytoplasm and nucleus in eukaryotic cells. This is comprised of intrinsically disordered proteins known as FG Nucleoporins that ... more
