N-STORM is a new super-resolution digital microscope system that combines “Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy” technology (licensed from Harvard University) and Nikon's Eclipse Ti research inverted microscope. N-STORM super-resolution microscope provides dramatically enhanced resolution that is 10 times or better than that of conventional optical microscopes and will be capable of multi-spectral two-dimensional and three-dimensional nanoscopy, with lateral resolution to approximately 2...

  • Application Area: Biomedical imaging

"This is very nice microscope for biologists. It offers 3D imaging with astigmatism introduced with cylindrical lens, and automatic calibration system as well as focus tracking/stabilization. However, it is a "closed" system so it is hard to make any modifications or upgrades without Nikon support. For scientists who like "custom" solutions I would recommend a bare body or one of the Olympus systems that seems to be more accessible."

N-STORM is a new super-resolution digital microscope system that combines “Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy” technology (licensed from Harvard University) and Nikon's Eclipse Ti research inverted microscope. N-STORM super-resolution microscope provides dramatically enhanced resolution that is 10 times or better than that of conventional optical microscopes and will be capable of multi-spectral two-dimensional and three-dimensional nanoscopy, with lateral resolution to approximately 20nm and axial resolution to approximately 50nm, extending the role of the optical microscope to near molecular level resolution.

STORM differs from conventional fluorescence microscopy in that it does not observe all the fluorescently labeled molecules on the sample at the same time, but activates only a very low percentage at any one given time. Repeating this process and acquiring multiple frames in which the molecules are localized with nanometer accuracy results in a final Super-Resolution image.
