Main content

The ultrahigh resolution dark-field microscope makes it possible to view particles in the nanorange with living cells placed in a live chamber. Thus, cell and particle behavior can be monitored in real time.

The system is equipped with dual fluorescence illumination which makes it possible to visualize biochemical changes in the cells. The system can also be used on tissue sections (glass slides).

 The instrument is located at Biomatlab. Laboratoriebygget, 7th floor.
