Dutch microscopy innovators, Confocal.nl, have released a new brochure explaining how Re-scan Confocal Microscopy (RCM) works. It shows how microscopists may configure their own turnkey system using their existing fluorescence microscope and accessories.
Developed in the Manders Group at the University of Amsterdam, Confocal.nl have commercialised RCM into a module that forms the heart of a new approach to super-resolution confocal microscopy. To illustrate this, the brochure includes comments from users at the University of Würzburg as to why they chose RCM from the various choices to upgrade their confocal imaging capabilities. It is complemented with many exciting images which show comparison of RCM, wide field and conventional confocal microscopies. Deconvolution of the RCM image shows even better resolution. The brochure may be downloaded by clicking the image bolow:
