The National Microscopy Infrastructure, NMI, is a Swedish infrastructure for the use and support of advanced microscopy in life science. NMI was founded in April 2016 with the financial support from the Swedish Research Council (VR-RFI) and cofinancing from the participating Universities. The four participating universities are: Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm University (SU), Umeå University (UmU) and University of Gothenburg (GU).

The mission of NMI is to provide faster access to innovative technology and competence in microscopy for the life science research community. NMI will also coordinate national and international knowledge exchange in microscopy.

Completed Event - Novel developments in superresolution Structural Illumination Microscopy (SIM) (2016-12-19)

Invited Bioimaging symposium

Time & place: December 13th at 13:15 in gamma-6 PASCAL room, SciLifeLab, Tomtebodavägen 23 A, Solna

Speaker: Aurélie Jost – Biological Nanoimaging group, Institute of Photonics Technology, Friedrich-Schiller Universität Jena, Germany

In the last decade a number of superresolution imaging modalities (STED, PALM, STORM, etc.) that apply switching of molecules between different fluorescent states have pushed the resolution in optical microscopy to the biological nanoscale. Simultaneously, an imaging mode in which the sample is illuminated with a grid of very fine lines has also allowed improving resolution. This technique is dubbed structured illumination microscopy (SIM) and in this talk theoretical and experimental demonstrations of this high resolution method will be presented and discussed.
