STED Super Resolution Microscopy
9:30 AM09:30

STED Super Resolution Microscopy

The Nano Research Facility (NRF) at DCU is delighted to announce an upcoming seminar and workshop on STED microscopy with Leica application engineer Paul McCormick.

STED (Stimulated Emission Depletion) is a super resolution fluorescent microscopy technique developed by Nobel Prize laureate Stefan Hell. It bypasses the diffraction limit of conventional confocal microscopy in order to achieve an improvement in resolution when imaging fluorophores that are commonly used to label biological samples. It provides fast, intuitive, and purely optical access to study subcellular architecture and dynamics at the nanoscale. It is suitable nanoscale imaging in top level biological and biomedical application and surface analysis in material science applications. 

If you would like to attend the seminar, a Workshop or both please fill in this form . For enquiries contact Úna Prendergast (
