RESCue STED enables superresolution imaging of the malaria infection cycle


EPYCON - Convert any epifluorescence microscope to confocal!

EPYCON readily converts any light microscope to a confocal with four fluorescence excitation lines:

  • 405nm (UV), 488nm, 561nm, 640nm
  • Installation within minutes 
  • Upgradable to Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)
  • Upgradable to STEDYCON: cutting-edge STED at 30 nm resolution
  • Highly affordable (please request a quote via email here)

Confocal vs. DyMIN STED imaging:

Confocal and easy3D DyMIN STED imaging of dendrites in brain slices. GFP-tagged proteins were expressed and immunolabelled using primary antibodies against GFP and secondary antibodies coupled to Abberior STAR 635P. Sample was prepared by O. Kaplan and H. Kawabe @ MPI of Experimental Medicine, Göttingen, Germany. Scale Bar, 2 µm.

DyMIN STED complements our existing list of intelligent STED illumination schemes, namely RESCue STED and MINFIELD STED. All three intelligent illumination schemes for STED dramatically reduce the light irradiation on your sample (DyMIN STED up to two orders of magnitude) and are exclusively available @ Abberior Instruments.
