Live-cell super-resolution eTIRF-SIM system
eTIRF-SIM (extended Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Structured Illumination) is a state of the art super-resolution microscope. It takes advantage of combining two imaging modalities TIRF and SIM in the same system, which allows achieving up to 90 nm axial and 150 nm lateral resolutions at very high acquisition rates – up to 100 ms per colour per frame. Moreover, TIRF illumination helps to reduce phototoxicity and photodamage as the sample is only illuminated at the basal plain leaving majority of it intact. This makes TIRF-SIM an ideal candidate for high resolution live cell imaging.
