MINFLUX (minimal photon flux) is the cutting-edge method for localizing fluorescent molecules with unprecedented precision.
By introducing the MINFLUX nanoscope, Abberior Instruments offers the first commercially available light microscope with a resolution of the size of a molecule.

Using Abberior STED-FCS, a team from four European countries, comprising Christian Eggeling (Leibniz IPHT & Friedrich Schiller University Jena) and Delphine Muriaux (Montpellier Infectious Disease Research Institute) discovered the existence and composition of a lipid-based platform for HIV virus assembly.
These results provide novel molecular insights on HIV virus assembly and are a starting point for the development of new antiviral drugs.
