MICROSCOPY: PICASSO and whole body-expansion microscopy for ultra-multiplexed imaging and whole-body super-resolution imaging

Dr. Jae-Byum Chang,  from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), presents two state-of-the-art techniques that he has recently developed. The first technique is PICASSO, which enables greater than 10-color multiplexed imaging of specimens without any reference spectra measurements, even with microscopy equipped with emission filters. The second technique is whole-body expansion microscopy, which enables the super-resolution imaging of all anatomical structures of whole vertebrates, especially zebrafish larvae.
