Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscope (STORM) Setup

Equipped with an Andor Ixon EM-CCD camera, the N-STORM (Nikon) super-resolution microscope provides dramatically enhanced resolution that is 10 times or better than that of conventional optical microscopes and will be capable of multi-spectral two-dimensional and three-dimensional nanoscopy, with lateral resolution to approximately 20nm and axial resolution to approximately 50nm, extending the role of the optical microscope to near molecular level resolution. The setup is suitable both for materials and live cell studies.
