Simultaneous Delivery of Spatial and Spectral Data Brings Major Innovation to Molecular Imaging

The iXon Ultra 897 camera from Andor is at the heart of a new technique called spectrally resolved stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (SR-STORM). T e iXon Ultra 897 combines spectroscopy with super-resolution microscopy to produce the first “true-color” super-resolution microscope. It allows one to image single molecules with unprecedented spectral and spatial resolution.
