Correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) combines the versatility of fluorescence microscopy (FLM) with the spatial resolution of transmission electron microscopy (TEM). For the analysis of tissues single resin or cryo-sections are incubated with fluorochrome- and gold-labeled probes. Areas of interest are selected at the FLM, and analyzed in the TEM at high resolution. This way, fluorescence is directly correlated to subcellular structures and/or corresponding immunogold signals.

Researchers have found a way to see synthetic nanostructures and molecules using a new type of super-resolution optical microscopy that does not require fluorescent dyes, representing a practical tool for biomedical and nanotechnology research.
"Super-resolution optical microscopy has opened a new window into the nanoscopic world," said Ji-Xin Cheng, an associate professor of biomedical engineering and chemistry at Purdue University.

True confocal microscope systems feature single-point illumination and single-point detection . The method is called "optical sectioning" since the generated image contains only information from the focal plane. The serial detection offers highly efficient and low-noise sensors for signal conversion. Although the nonparallel detection is not conducive to high-speed imaging, modern scanning concepts allow frame rates above 400 frames per second at reasonable noise levels.

For only a few years, it has been possible to resolve biological structures down to the molecular scale with light microscopy, termed super-resolution microscopy. This has led to a number of new insights into biological processes. However, there have been limits to the techniques: so far it has been difficult to distinguish between sample specific and microscope specific error sources if the images were blurry. Moreover, different techniques could not easily be compared.
