Super resolution microscopy that answers the deep biological questions effortlessly
At CrestOptics, we believe that super-resolution should be accessible for all scientists to progress their research. This is the reason we have developed DeepSIM, the first super-resolution module that is compatible with any existing upright or inverted microscope with a camera port. It’s as easy to use as a confocal microscope enabling scientists to access deep data from their biological samples.
Based on a multi-spot structured illumination system, the DeepSIM is a reliable, simple to use and affordable solution to study cellular structures up to an XY resolution of ~100nm.
Super-resolved optical sectioning, with Z resolution up to ~ 300nm, can be obtained using both high (60X – 100X) and low magnification (20x – 40x) objectives to expand the range of applications to include complex 3D models such as tissues, organoids, spheroids and small organisms.
The DeepSIM is designed to work with samples of thicknesses comparable to those used in confocal microscopy, giving super-resolved data over 50µm Z in depth in non-clarified samples.
This means that more meaningful data can be obtained from native heterogeneous complex samples using routine preparation protocols.
DeepSIM enables the effortless study of live-cell dynamics through a temporal resolution greater than 10fps (1024×1024 px FOV), allowing biological changes to be tracked at cellular and subcellular levels.
