Imaging
Elyra microscope systems
Carl Zeiss has introduced a product family that enables scientists to image cellular structures marked with fluorescent dyes with maximum spatial resolution below the classic diffraction limit of microscopes, i.e. under 200 nanometers.
Carl Zeiss has introduced a product family that enables scientists to image cellular structures marked with fluorescent dyes with maximum spatial resolution below the classic diffraction limit of microscopes, i.e. under 200 nanometers. The system line is comprised of three microscope systems, Elyra P.1, Elyra S.1 and Elyra PS.1. With P.1, photoactivated localization microscopy (PAL-M) technology is offered for the first time, where light microscopic images can be produced with effective lateral resolutions of down to 20 nanometers. Elyra S.1 makes superresolution structured illumination microscopy (SR-SIM) available, where any fluorophore can be imaged with up to double the resolution of conventional microscopy. The Elyra PS.1 combined system permits the combination of these two technologies on one stand, with each other and with a laser-scanning microscope, allowing an object to be imaged with three techniques in succession.
