Abberior Instruments and Super Resolution Microscopy at Lastek

In the current Issue of Imaging & Microscopy (p.46, Volume 19, March 2017) Abberior present their Compact Line STEDYCON (shown above). Article available online here: "STED in a Shoebox. Ultra-Compact Microscopes with Unprecedented User-Friendliness“. 

In recent years, fluorescence microscopy has undergone a revolution: the resolution barrier given by the diffraction limit was broken by new microscopy concepts such as STED, GSD, GSDIM, PALM, STORM and RESOLFT. Abberior Instruments, co-founded by 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner, Professor Stefan W. Hell,  has rapidly become the leading supplier of cutting-edge super-resolution technology with the best possible resolution performance. In combination with their sister company Abberior, they offer an unrivaled combination of superresolution dyes and nanoscopy hardware. 

Based on more than two decades of research experience in superresolution microscopy / fluorescence nanoscopy and a passion for developing novel concepts and methods in superresolution imaging for this new era of microscopy, the Abberior Instruments team is able to offer novel superresolution microscopes for general applicability in the live sciences. In Australia and New Zealand, Abberior has partnered with Lastek to offer the most complete experience for super resolution microscopy.  Contact us to discuss your application today. Read more on systems from Abberior Instruments and other accessories for super resolution microscopy at Lastek below.

Abberior Instruments easy3D STED: Explore the 3rd dimension

3d module rendered crop.1280x0

  • Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) technology
  • Resolution tunable between xy and z
  • Single STED beam
  • Enables the use of different objective lenses
  • Resolution typically 80 × 80 × 90 nm
  • Engineered for maximum stability

Abberior Instruments is proud to announce its new easy3D STED module which uses a completely novel approach to 3D STED microscopy. At its core, a programmable spatial light modulator (SLM) is used to create the phase patterns required for 2D and 3D STED microscopy. At the same time, it can also be used to correct for optical aberrations.
