Imaging at ‘LightSpeed:’ Novel EMCCD Camera Mode Brings Speed and Flexibility to Super-Resolution Imaging

Imagine trying to photograph a cheetah running at full-speed without moving your camera. It sounds tedious, but it’s the kind of handicap many researchers face when imaging high-speed molecular events in super resolution, such as virus-cell interactions or neuron firings. Current scientific cameras offer high-speed acquisition rates, but many limit you to preset regions within […]

Imaging at the Edge: Improve Multiphoton TIRF Imaging Sensitivity with Titanium:Sapphire Laser Pulse Shaping

Advances in microscopy have allowed cell biologists to catalogue many subcellular processes in great detail. Optical microscopes are even capable of imaging and tracking single molecules. However, the weak signals of single molecules and complications like autofluorescence, out-of-focus fluorescence, or secondary excitation can make discerning these individual molecules from the background impossible. Total Internal Reflection […]
