2015 Core Instrumentation Fund Awardee

Awardee: David Hinton
Equipment: N-STORM Single Molecule Super-Resolution and Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope system.
Facility: Cell and Tissue Imaging Core Facility

The N-STORM allows imaging of biological samples with a 20 fold increase in resolution of conventional confocal microscopes. The imaging method consists of sequentially activating individual photoswitchable fluorophores on biological samples to build super-resolved images of biological processes with a precision better than 20 nm
