Super resolution microscopy in Leicester.

Within the AIF we try to provide users with easy access to advanced imaging technologies but microscopy is continuously and rapidly evolving and several novel imaging techniques or improvements have recently become commercially available. Besides this, several research groups within the College build or built their own microscope systems. How can we improve microscopy in the AIF and in the College in general? What additional system would you like to be included in the AIF? Please visit the future.
