Super-Resolution Microscopy

Structured-illumination microscope image of an oligodendrocyte

The image above is of an oligodendrocyte labeled with Alexa488-phalloidin to label the actin filaments (image courtesy of Brad Zuchero in the Barres lab and Andrew Olson, Neuroscience Microscopy Service).  It was imaged on a Deltavision OMX microscope located in the Neuroscience Microscopy Service (NMS) in the basement of SIM1.  This microscope can acquire three dimensional super-resolution images by using a structured illumination (SI) pattern produced by a grating.
