Zeiss Elyra PS.1
The Zeiss Elyra PS.1 is a combination setup for the following imaging modalities -
Super-resolution structured illumination microscopy or SIM
Sim is an easily accessible super-resolution technology that uses standard fluorophores and yields up to 8-fold improvement in voxel resolution.
- SIngle-molecule localization microscopy, such as PALM and STORM.
Single molecule localization techniques generally require use of unusual labeling techniques, but can yield more than ten-fold lateral resolution improvement. Note that imaging is limited to area close to the coverslip.
- Laser-scanning confocal microscopy (LSM710).
Pinhole-based out-of-focus light rejection in confocal microscopy has long been used for high-resolution imaging. On our setup, this well-accepted methodology can be compared to the more advanced super-resolution technologies without moving the sample.
