Super-resolution microscopy: ready to test your knowledge?

Over the past 10-15 years, new technologies have gone beyond the diffraction limit of optical microscopy. These “super-resolution” microscopies rely on fluorescence imaging and encompass multiple techniques that achieve higher resolution than traditional light microscopy giving exciting opportunities for scientists to ask entirely new levels of questions. The differences between these individual technologies result in a trade-off between spatial resolution, temporal resolution and phototoxicity applied to a specific biological question.

Are you ready to test your knowledge on these microscopy methods used in some of the NCCR labs, such as the Manley lab at the EPFL?

This quiz was created by Victoria von Glasenapp (University of Geneva) and Luis Hernandez Ramirez (EPFL).
Thanks a lot to both of them!
