Correlative Microscopy: Combining STED Capability with Atomic Force Microscopy
JPK Instruments, a manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, announced a new demonstration capability at their Berlin headquarters. In collaboration with Abberior Instruments, visitors to JPK's applications facility will be able to see STED capability demonstrated in conjunction with the NanoWizard AFMs.
Co-founded by the 2014 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry, Professor Stefan Hell, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, and co-workers from his group in Göttingen and at the German Cancer Research Institute in Heidelberg, Abberior Instruments was founded in 2012 to offer patent-protected, novel super-resolution microscopes for general applicability in the life sciences. The company has developed a completely new instrument: the ultimate compact STED plus confocal microscope known as Stedycon. This converts a conventional epifluorescence microscope into a powerful multi-color confocal and STED system. This is the perfect complementary partner for the NanoWizard AFM systems to deliver correlative microscopy on a new level, one which is readily accessible to users from multiple background & disciplines.
