Special symposium features STORM super-resolution imaging in life sciences
Nikon Instruments has introduced the new N-STORM 5.0 at the prestigious Nikon Center of Excellence at the Institute of Experimental Medicine, Hungarian Academy of Sciences. This special occasion was celebrated by some 150 participants during a scientific symposium, ‘New approaches and applications of STORM super-resolution imaging in life sciences.’
Mr Takaharu Sasaoka, President of Nikon Instruments Europe B.V., officially presented Nikon’s latest Super Resolution System N-STORM 5.0. He was pleased to acknowledge the contribution the Center has made to producing key findings in the cutting edge science through optical imaging, as well as the collaboration at a research development level and the specialized expertise of Nikon’s Hungarian distributor, Auro-Science Consulting Kft. Mr Sasaoka emphasized Nikon’s commitment to contribute to people’s quality of life, revealing that the optical microscopy division has become a key part of Nikon’s Healthcare Business sector. He ended by offering special thanks to the directors of the Center, Professor Tamás Freund and Professor István Katona for the continued partnership with Nikon.
N-STORM 5.0 takes advantage of Nikon’s ultra-stable, high performance Ti2-E inverted microscope and applies high accuracy, multi-colour localization and reconstruction in three dimensions (xyz) to enable super resolution imaging at tenfold the resolution of conventional microscopes (up to 20 nm in xy). Nikon’s specialized software, NIS-Elements, enables unprecedented flexibility in STORM acquisition workflow, expanding application capabilities.
