Exciting new research on imaging live cells with fluorescence and electron microscopy published in ACS Nano

December 02, 2015

A paper on the benefits of the integration of electron and fluorescence microscopy has recently been accepted to be published in ACS Nano. High-resolution imaging of live cells at the scale of a few nanometers is always a challenge because of the damage caused to cells by the process of electron microscopy, by which cells are fixed or frozen and placed in a vacuum. Research conducted at the Department of Imaging Physics at Delft University of Technology and the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at Vanderbilt University explores this challenge through an innovative method for imaging live cells with both fluorescence and electron microscopy. DELMIC’s Daan van Oosten Slingeland was one of the contributors of the project.
